The first thing you are probably noticing as you look at this post is that I have lovely cream puffs....and no ring....well....
I looked at the recipe and realized that not only did it serve 12 people, but that making it in the ring form would make it very difficult to give away to people. So, I cut the recipe in half and made the dough into individual cream puffs.
The mint infused cream was wonderful, up to the point where I whipped it. I never could get it to make the peaks that it was supposed to. However, the flavor was amazing! I ended up putting plain whipped cream in the middles with the sour cream, and having minty coffee for several days. The idea of infusing the cream with mint is a wonderful one, and I intend to try this recipe again, this time being more careful with my whipped cream.
I was really scared at the idea of making puff pastry. Oddly enough, the pastry was the easiest part of the whole recipe. My mini cream puffs came out beautifully!
