A perfectly baked choux pastry ring is filled with a mixture of pastry cream, whipped cream and vanilla extract. Although the traditional Paris Brest is made with a praline filling, this one is just as good!
I just made this. It took awhile because I'm an amateur but I really liked the way it came out, even though the recipe took long to get through. Not as beautiful as yours though! Thank you for sharing this recipe - 07 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
