Cream Puffy Goodness

I have always wanted to try my hand at the Cream Puff. I've tried the Cheese Puff, with great success. I guess that extra step of making the pastry cream always prevented me from giving it a go. But today was the day!
I used Ina Garten / Barefoot Contessa's recipe for Profiteroles and Pastry cream. They were great! My little niece, who is not quite 4 years old, ate 4 of them at dessert! Four! More than anyone else! She liked them. a lot.

Here I am piping out the Profiteroles (Choux pate)

You wet your finger to pat down the little peaks

The finished product - filled with delicious pastry cream, drizzled with chocolate, and dusted with powdered sugar
