So the short story is, this round choux pastry filled with whipped cream is named after a French bicycle race from Paris to Brest. The race is years before the Tour de France and Lance Armstrong, but let's stay focused on dessert. This week's sweet is a Peppermint Cream Puff Ring courtesy of Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD). To make it, a bit of planning is required. It's a three stage process. The dough, the minty light whipped cream filling to pipe on to the base, and finally the chocolate glaze, VOILA . I'm off to bike through Central Park's scenic 6 mile loop. Whew!
