Ingredients for Blueberry and White Chocolate Ganache on a Profiterole

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces white chocolate
  • 2 1/4 cups blueberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/ 2 cup water
  • 1/ 2 cup whole milk
  • 8 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs

Directions for Blueberry and White Chocolate Ganache on a Profiterole

  1. Ganache: Cook the blueberries and sugar over medium heat until juice is syrup like consistency. Strain the blueberries through a fine mesh strainer (chinois). You don’t want to have the skins of the berries in the ganache, just the juices. Reserve this liquid.
  2. Bring the heavy cream to a simmer in a small saucepan. Add the white chocolate and stir frequently or whisk until smooth. This can also be done over a double broiler to risk the chance of scalding the cream and chocolate. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the blueberry liquid. A pourable ganache should be held around 90 degrees F. The ganache can be held in refrigeration for 4 days or frozen for 3 months.
  3. Ice Cream: Puree blueberries in a food processor until the berries are somewhat chunky, similar to a salsa consistency. Whisk the sugar and eggs in a medium mixing bowl until they are thickened and pale yellow. Bring the creams to a simmer in a saucepan (170-degrees F). Slowly whisk the cream mixture into the egg and sugar mixture. Pour entire mixture back into saucepan and bring and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the custard thickens. If the heat gets too high or boils, the eggs will scramble. Pour the custard through a strainer into a clean bowl. Place in a freezer until cool, then stir in blueberries and vanilla extract. Transfer to an ice cream machine and follow manufacturer’s directions or return to freezer and stir occasionally until custard sets.
  4. Profiteroles: Bring water, milk, and butter to a boil, then add flour all at once, stirring vigorously with a large spoon until mixture groups together. Reduce heat while continuing to stir for one more minute to cook out any excess moisture. Beat the eggs in one at a time with a mixer at low speed or with a spoon. Make sure the paste is smooth before the next egg is added. When all eggs are incorporated, the dough should be smooth and shiny.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  6. Place paste in a large pastry bag and pipe on to a large ungreased cookie sheet in 12 round mounds around 2 to 2 1/ 2-inch in diameter and 1-inch high. Place in 400-degrees for 15 minutes then reduce heat to 350-degrees for roughly 25 to 30 minutes. Profiteroles should be golden brown. Remove from oven and place profiteroles on a rack to cool.
  7. Cut profiteroles in half. Scoop blueberry ice cream into bottom half of profiteroles and place top half on ice cream. Drizzle with ganache. Top with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a few fresh blueberries.

  • Chocolate Cookie Recipes
  • Cookie – A cookie is a baked or cooked snack or dessert that is typically small, flat and sweet. It usually contains flour, sugar, egg, and some type of oil, fat, or butter. It may include other ingredients such as raisins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.In most English-speaking countries except for the United States, crunchy cookies are called biscuits. Many Canadians also use this term. Chewier biscuits are sometimes called cookies even in the United Kingdom. Some cookies may also be named by their shape, such as date squares or bars.Biscuit or cookie variants include sandwich biscuits, such as custard creams, Jammie Dodgers, Bourbons and Oreos, with marshmallow or jam filling and sometimes dipped in chocolate or another sweet coating. Cookies are often served with beverages such as milk, coffee or tea and sometimes “dunked”, an approach which releases more flavour from confections by dissolving the sugars, while also softening their texture. Factory-made cookies are sold in grocery stores, convenience stores and vending machines. Fresh-baked cookies are sold at bakeries and coffeehouses, with the latter ranging from small business-sized establishments to multinational corporations such as Starbucks.
  • Fruit Dessert Recipes
  • Dessert – Dessert (/dɪˈzɜːrt/) is a course that concludes a meal. The course consists of sweet foods, such as confections, and possibly a beverage such as dessert wine and liqueur. In some parts of the world, such as much of Central Africa and West Africa, and most parts of China, there is no tradition of a dessert course to conclude a meal.The term dessert can apply to many confections, such as biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts and fruit salad. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its naturally occurring sweetness. Some cultures sweeten foods that are more commonly savory to create desserts.
  • Fruit – In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants that is formed from the ovary after flowering.Fruits are the means by which flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) disseminate their seeds. Edible fruits in particular have long propagated using the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship that is the means for seed dispersal for the one group and nutrition for the other; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Consequently, fruits account for a substantial fraction of the world’s agricultural output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic meanings.In common language usage, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges, and strawberries. In botanical usage, the term “fruit” also includes many structures that are not commonly called “fruits”, such as nuts, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, and wheat grains.
  • Baking – Baking is a method of preparing food that uses dry heat, typically in an oven, but can also be done in hot ashes, or on hot stones. The most common baked item is bread but many other types of foods are baked. Heat is gradually transferred “from the surface of cakes, cookies, and breads to their center. As heat travels through, it transforms batters and doughs into baked goods and more with a firm dry crust and a softer center”. Baking can be combined with grilling to produce a hybrid barbecue variant by using both methods simultaneously, or one after the other. Baking is related to barbecuing because the concept of the masonry oven is similar to that of a smoke pit.Because of historical social and familial roles, baking has traditionally been performed at home by women for day-to-day meals and by men in bakeries and restaurants for local consumption. When production was industrialized, baking was automated by machines in large factories. The art of baking remains a fundamental skill and is important for nutrition, as baked goods, especially breads, are a common and important food, both from an economic and cultural point of view. A person who prepares baked goods as a profession is called a baker. On a related note, a pastry chef is someone who is trained in the art of making pastries, desserts, bread and other baked goods.

  • Blueberry – See textBlueberries are a widely distributed and widespread group of perennial flowering plants with blue or purple berries. They are classified in the section Cyanococcus within the genus Vaccinium. Vaccinium also includes cranberries, bilberries, huckleberries and Madeira blueberries. Commercial blueberries—both wild (lowbush) and cultivated (highbush)—are all native to North America. The highbush varieties were introduced into Europe during the 1930s.Blueberries are usually prostrate shrubs that can vary in size from 10 centimeters (4 inches) to 4 meters (13 feet) in height. In commercial production of blueberries, the species with small, pea-size berries growing on low-level bushes are known as “lowbush blueberries” (synonymous with “wild”), while the species with larger berries growing on taller, cultivated bushes are known as “highbush blueberries”. Canada is the leading producer of lowbush blueberries, while the United States produces some 40% of the world supply of highbush blueberries.

  • Cinco de Mayo – Cinco de Mayo (pronounced  in Mexico, Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is an annual celebration held on May 5, which commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Led by General Ignacio Zaragoza, the victory of a smaller, poorly equipped Mexican force against the larger and better-armed French army was a morale boost for the Mexicans. Zaragoza died months after the battle from an illness, and a larger French force ultimately defeated the Mexican army at the Second Battle of Puebla and occupied Mexico City.More popular in the United States than in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. Celebrations began in California, where they have been observed annually since 1863. The day gained nationwide popularity in the 1980s due to advertising campaigns by beer, wine, and tequila companies; today, Cinco de Mayo generates beer sales on par with the Super Bowl. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades or battle reenactments. The city of Puebla marks the event with various festivals and reenactments of the battle.Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores in 1810, which initiated the war of Mexican independence from Spain. Cinco de Mayo has been referenced and featured in entertainment media, and has become an increasingly global celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, and heritage.
