Pumpkin Custard Profiteroles with Maple Caramel
I'm sure these pumpkin custard profiteroles with maple caramel from Bon Appetit are wonderful. I, however, will never know. I only got as far as the profiteroles, which looked perfect going into the oven and came out flat as pancakes. The Hub thought we could still try to cut them in half and pull them into the correct shape. I was not willing to risk the many expensive ingredients and time consuming instructions needed to try and salvage them nor was I willing to make this part again. It about broke my heart the first time because they were so gorgeous. Many of the recipe reviewers on the website also had trouble with different parts of the recipe. I love the idea of pumpkin profiteroles so maybe I'll try them again sometime with a different less complicated recipe.
