Definition: Profiterole

Small, round, French pastries that are served cold. Also know as cream puffs, profiteroles are usually filled with whipped or pastry cream and often are topped with caramel, powdered sugar, or crème anglaise. The puffs are sliced at the top, filled using a pastry bag, and reassembled with the top replaced.

The savory variation of the profiterole is the gougère.
