Chocolate Cream Puffs with Mascarpone Filling - Tuesdays with Dorie

This week, I made a delicious variation of a cream puff for Tuesdays with Dorie comprising chocolate pâte à choux and rich mascarpone cream filling.
The puffs were amazingly chocolatey despite the small amount of cocoa in the dough and I thought the filling was the perfect cool and creamy foil for all of that chocolate goodness. Standard cream puffs with whipped cream filling will always be the family favourite but this version is one I would make again.

Gâteau Basque Fantasie - Tuesdays with Dorie

Not quite a cake, not quite a pie either, but a tourte, a fruit-filled pastry, was our latest baking project from Baking Chez Moi.
The delicious filling was a surprising combination of apples, red grapes, oranges, dried cranberries and walnuts, something you could easily vary to suit your taste. It went beautifully with the tender cookie-like crust.
