1 Apt. 2B Baking Co.: Chouquettes

Sunday, October 17, 2010


I'm a big time sucker for specialty baking ingredients and edible souvenirs so when I saw this sugar in a little Parisian shop I knew I had to have it. It wasn't until I returned from my trip that I learned what it was for, and my goodness chouquettes are good. All it takes is a bit of choux pastry coated with crunchy pearl sugar and baked until golden brown and crunchy. There are quite a few recipes to be found for these guys, but I used one from a favorite blog of mine, Chocolate and Zucchini.

p.s. You can find pearl sugar in many online stores and at IKEA in their Swedish food market.


  1. Your choices in recipes and capturing food in photos is really splendid. I'm so glad I found your baking blog.

  2. Was I with you at that little Parisian shop?! Jet-setter!!!


Thank you for stopping by!
