AKA Lemon Filled Cream Puffs (it just sounds more appetizing in French.
I found out at the last minute I would be having some family come by for tea tomorrow, so I immediately panicked. I knew there was very little I could pull out and make at the last minute, and that my refrigerator had become stocked with restraurant take away cartons and beer bottles during my recent absence.
So I did what I do best......
I sat and cried and screamed and might have even cursed some.... then though hey what DO i have that can be transformed.
I had flour, milk, butter, eggs, lemons, salt, some sugar and a small amount of cream.....
Surely this could be made into something,right?
The ingredients kept going through my mind, until voila!
