Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Breakfast
Choux dough:
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1 drop orange food coloring
  • 10 clementines, chopped
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Cream filling:
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon clementine juice
  • Zest of 1 clementine
  • Mint, to garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
For the choux dough:
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring butter, sugar, salt and water to a boil. Add the flour all at once and mix until it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat and beat in eggs one at a time.
For the craquelin:
  1. In a medium bowl, mix softened butter with brown sugar until blended; add flour and lightly mix. Add food coloring and knead until combined and smooth. Roll out into a ¼-inch layer, and use a 1-inch round cookie cutter to cut into discs.
  2. Using a piping bag with a ½-inch round tip, pipe 1 inch by 1 inch portions of the choux dough onto prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Top with a disc of the craquelin. Bake for 25 minutes or until puffed and golden, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking process. Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack.
For the clementine marmalade:
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine chopped clementines, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened. Allow to cool.
For the cream filling:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whip cream, clementine juice and zest until stiff peaks form.
To assemble:
  1. Slice a cream puff in half. Pipe ¼ cup of the whipped cream mixture on the bottom. Pipe a teaspoon of the marmalade in the middle of the cream and top with the other half. Garnish with mint.
