Oreo Cream Puffs | Recipe

12 Oreo cookies,
1 egg yolk,
2 tbsp sugar,
2 tbsp cornstarch,
1/2 cup cream,
1/2 cup milk,

1/2 cup water,
4 tbsp butter,
1/4 cup all-purpose flour,
1 tbsp cocoa powder,
2 tbsp sugar,
2 eggs

*Preheat oven to 220C
1. Separate 12 Oreo cookies so that you're left with 12 creme fillings and 24 thin chocolate cookies.
2. Grind the chocolate cookies in a food processor until a fine powder is formed. Set aside.
3. Whisk egg yolk, sugar and cornstarch until thick. Then, whisk the cream and milk until smooth.
4. Sift this mixture using a strainer into a pan. Heat on low heat whilst constantly stirring until the custard thickens and leaves a trail behind when whisked.
5, Whisk in the 12 Oreo creme fillings until melted and smooth.
6. Transfer the custard into a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap, making sure it touches the custard itself to prevent a skin from forming.
7. Let the custard cool completely whilst we make the cream puffs themselves.

8. In a large pan, heat the water and butter until melted on low to medium heat.
9. Add in the flour, chocolate cookie crumbs, cocoa powder and sugar. Stir until a dough forms and there is a film at the bottom of the pan. Let this cool completely.
10. Once cooled, whisk in one egg until the dough is nicely loosened. Whisk in the other egg.
11. Transfer mixture/dough into a piping bag and snip a 1/2 inch from the tip.
12. Pipe mounds on a lined baking sheet, ensuring 2-3cm is left between each mound.
13. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until fully risen.
14. Cool in the oven for 30 minutes with the oven door open slightly. This helps prevent shrinkage and deflation of the cream puffs.
15. Take them out and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

16. Fill a piping bag with the custard, fitted with a star tip/nozzle.
17. Flip a cream puff upside down and puncture the bottom with the tip, squeezing gently to gfill with custard. It is done filling when you feel the pressure of the cream puff increasing as it expands until it feels like it's about to ooze.
18. Dust and garnish with powdered sugar and enjoy.
