YUM!!!

My friend Tara is a graduate of the Scottsdale Culinary Institute, so she knows how to make all kinds of YUMMY stuff! Every now and again we have a little mini class with her, and she teaches us how to make something! On Tuesday we made cream horns!
Wrapping strips of Puff pastry carefully..

Then an egg wash and some chunky sugar..
We can smell them baking...
Fill them with chocolate whipping cream/pudding
mixtures, or strawberry whipping cream..

And VOILA!! Cream Horns!
Tara dolled up the one below- she's good like that!
We had lots of fun! We delivered a few to some friends and
neighbors nearby! Thanks again Tara for an awesome afternoon!

It was so much fun! You got great pictures too. Perhaps if I had you to take pictures when I cook I'd update my own little deglected blog more often. I'm so glad you and your girls came over!

Man, we should move in next to you! Those look so yummy! Maybe I'll have to get Tara to come and do something with my girls some time!

Cute pics!

Those look terrific! Puff pastry is so much fun - easy to work with and light & flakey every time! Your girls must have had great fun baking.

I'm sure there's a way to make chocolate eclaires with frozen puff pastry but I am afraid to explore. Pastry with cream filling in ungodly good and devilishly fattening. I can eat one Pringle - but one eclaire? No way!

I have been hesitant to use puff pastry, but it was lots of fun. I want to buy more, but probably will not, because I just committed myself to 10 weeks of Weight Watchers.. ..
