The Beard Papa's Cream Puff

Have anyone heard of Beard Papa's cream puff before? Mm..mm..NOT ME ! I've only seen it on the web site. And found out there's actually a few Beard Papa's outlets at some of the biggest shopping mall in Malaysia. I have yet tried anything from any of the shops but already drooling after went through the menu, click to see Are you salivating too???? haha.... So many varieties to choose from  The menu looks truly mouthwatering, isn't it? And I knew I got to make some. So, here's my homemade version of Beard Papa's cookie crust puff.

Ingredients for Choux Pastry :
(A)
100ml  water
100ml  milk
100gm  butter
a pinch of salt
1 tspn  sugar

(B)
120gm   all purpose flour

(C)
3-4 eggs, lightly beaten

Method :
(1) bring ingredients (A) to boil then remove from heat.
(2) stir in flour and mix to well over low heat till you get a dough ball.
(3) now, transfer dough ball to a big plastic bowl & let dough cool for 5 mins, then stir in egg one at a time by using a wooden or plastic spoon. Keep stirring untill you get the right consistency. (not too firm nor too runny). You don't have to use up all the eggs.
(4) fill mixture into pipping bag and pipe into small dough to baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
(5) cut cookie dough into small pieces and flatten by pressing between a plastic sheet, then place onto choux batter.
(6) finally, bake at preheated oven 195-200'C for about 20 mins or till nicely puffed up & brown.
(7) cooled and cut open the pastry then fill in the cream.

Ingredients for top Cookie Crust :
60gm  butter, at room temperature
60gm  sugar / brown sugar
80gm  all purpose flour
1-1/2 tspn  cinnamon powder
(cream butter & sugar till combined then stir in flour & cinnamon to form a dough, wrap with plastic sheet then keep refrigerated for 30 mins before used)

Ingredients for Dulce De Leche Cream :
one French Butter cream recipe
1/2 cup  homemade dulce de leche cream
(combine everything and beat to mix well, then fill into pipping bag & ready to use)

Oooo.....Nothing better than enjoying these with a cup of coffee. The French cream works very well with these little puffs. I actually prefer cream than custard for fillings. I think it's a better combination. Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy & have fun.

Hi Kristy,

We used to have a Beard Papa in Melbourne city but business was bad and it closed down... Maybe we are our delicious puff at home. That's why!!!

Thanks for your lovely recommendation. I would love to try baking these too.

An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was
doing a little research on this. And he in fact
ordered me dinner because I found it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.
... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk
about this issue here on your blog.

Hi Kristy! I haven't been by to visit you for a while...and I sure picked a great recipe!
Yum...this looks fabulous, but anything with dulce de leche is divine. Have not heard of Beard Papa until now.
