How to: Pate au Choux with rum infused sweet potato puree

Want to make an appetizer that is easy, eye catching, and delicious? 

Then make choux pastry pipped with sweet potato or if you want other ideas try a spinach choux filled with cheese or a carrot choux filled with spinach or a chocolate choux filled with vanilla cream or a vanilla choux filled with chocolate cream or a chocolate/chocolate or a vanilla/vanilla or what ever combination you can think of but remember you heard it here first.

Bake them till golden and pipe in your favorite sweet or savory filling.

You can believe me when I tell you that it is easier than you think. (look at my poor wounded fingers - I had a "knife incident" LOL). Make some pate au choux and impress your guests.

My hubby hovers over me when I have a knife in hand, as if he's fearful I might injure myself. That looks very painful; fingertips are a bad place to cut. The appetizers look great, but I probably can't wrap my pea sized brain around them this week.

Happy Holidays,

Love the idea of a savory pate au choux! And with sweet potatoes yet. You are so clever!
Ouch to the kitchen wound. (I happen to have one too...gives me shivers to think about it.)
