Little Wine Cookies / Biscottini al Vino
MAKES ABOUT 48 PUFFS
On March 19, the feast of San Giuseppe, every Italian household makes its version of zeppole, or cream puffs. The shells can be made ahead and frozen, and the filling can be made a day before serving. The lard is what makes the recipe authentic, but you may use all butter.
Me again. I added another egg to the remaining paste. Seems to help. 2 3/4 c flour is a lot with only 6 eggs, 2 c water and about 9 T fat.
Or maybe I should cut the flour to 2 cups to bring it more in line with a regular choux paste recipe and keep the eggs at 6?
I’ll try it that way and judge the texture of the paste before I add more eggs.
