I received many requests for シュークリーム (choux cream / cream puffs), but well… why don't I make something more fun!? So, I decided to make ones with vanilla ice cream filling ;)

Instead of ice cream, you can also fill them with custard cream!

Ice Cream Puffs (Choux Pastry filled with Parfait Glacé)

Difficulty: medium
Time: 2hrs + freezing time
Number of Servings: 10-12

((Choux Pastry))
100ml water
45g (1.6oz.) unsalted butter
a pinch of salt
60g (2.1oz.) cake flour
2-2.5 eggs *room temperature
((Vanilla Ice Cream))
2 whole eggs *room temperature
50g (1.8oz.) granulated sugar
50ml water
200ml whipping cream (fresh cream)
2.5cm (1inch) vanilla bean *or a few drops of vanilla extract

((Choux Pastry))
1. Place water, butter, and a pinch of salt in a pot. Then bring to a boil.
2. Stop the heat, sift in flour, and mix well until combined.
3. Put on medium heat, knead the dough by spreading it onto the bottom of the pot for 1 minute. When the dough cleanly comes away from the sides of the pot, turn off the heat.
4. Mix in the beaten eggs little by little, until the dough slowly drops off from the spatula and the remaining dough hangs down and forms a triangular shape.
5. Preheat the oven to 190C (374F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fit a pastry bag with a big round tip, and fill with the dough. Pipe out the dough in 5cm (2inch) circles.
6. With a fork (or your finger) dipped in water, lightly press the dough to make them rise evenly.
7. Bake at 190C (374F) for about 30 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Stop the heat and leave them in the oven to cool down slowly in the oven for 10 minutes so that they won't shrink. Then leave to cool completely (on the baking sheet is ok).
((Vanilla Ice Cream))
1. Beat 2 whole eggs in a bowl.
2. Heat granulated sugar and water in a saucepan by tilting the pan. Then simmer until the liquid gets syrupy and the bubbles get larger. Make sure you don't brown the syrup, then stop the heat. (Do not mix it with a spoon but tilt the pan to mix it. The sugar will recrystallize if you mix it with a spoon.)
3. Add the hot syrup (little by little if you can) in the beaten eggs, then immediately beat with an electric mixer until white and fluffy. *the syrup sterilizes and removes the egg smell and helps beat the eggs fluffy.
4. Use a knife to split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Use the blunt edge to scrape out the seeds. Combine whipping cream and vanilla seeds in a dry, clean bowl. Float the bottom of the bowl in ice water, whisk the cream until it forms a stiff peak.
5. Add the whipped cream into the egg mixture and cut through the mixture with wire whisk or a spatula until combined.
6. Fit a pastry bag with a small round tip, and fill with the cream. Pipe the cream into the bottom of choux pastry.
7. Freeze until firm.

You can put the remaining filling in small cups and make small cup ice cream.
