Profiteroles/Cream Puff/Kue Sus

A profiterole or cream puff is a popular choux pastry. Choux paste is baked into small round puffs that are served cold with a sweet filling and sometimes a topping. The usual fillings are whipped cream and pastry cream, however cream containing alcohol is not uncommon. The puffs may be left plain or cut to resemble swans or decorated with chocolate sauce, caramel, or a dusting of powdered sugar.

My profiteroles come with Rum for the filling. It does bring the fragrant smell & tastier.
One recipe makes 20 pieces with approx. diameter 9-10 cm each.
