Puff'd up Perfection

This entry originally took place on April 7.

Craving cream puffs, we stopped by Marzullo Bakery for a dozen. There were actually three different types here, but unfortunately I don't know the names of them.

Cream puff 1: (Front, first from left.) These were the biggest. Whipped white inside with chocolate chips laced through the cream. Not too heavy. Not my usual idea of a cream puff, but a treat nonetheless.

Cream puff 2: (Back, second from left.) Also whipped white but with a slightly heavier, more cheese-like taste. It's not ricotta, but tastes pretty close to it.

Cream puff 3: (2nd row, first from right.) Whereas the first two were more Italian-style, Cream Puff 3 took after the French vanilla cream puff with its yellow, gooey, custard center.

Favorite: A tie between No. 2 and No. 3. I prefer the texture of No. 3 and the airy, cheese-like flavor of No. 2. All of them were delicious, though!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. Could be more refined (ain't nothin' like Maria's), but worth a few bucks.

  1. Actually, there's more than three; more like if I'm thinking right. 1 is probably canoli. 2 -- unsure of. 3 definitely custard.
