Rose Whipping Cream filling for Cream Puffs
at least 1 cup whipping cream (more depending on how many cream puffs you are making)
1 tbsp. powdered sugar
1/2-2 tsp. rose water (to taste- I bought mine at an Indian market)
*rose petals/ buds (*optional garnish found at Middle Eastern markets)
Put whipping cream and powdered sugar in a bowl and whip to stiff peaks. Gently fold in rose water. Start with a small amount and add more to taste.
To assemble your cream puffs, slice in half horizontally. Put a thin layer of your jam inside the cream puff and then fill with the rose water whipped cream. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. If desired, you can dip the underside of your rose petals in the whipped cream and gently attach them to the top of the cream puff for decoration.
I served mine with rose custard on the side, in case there wasn’t enough rose-flavored goodness involved.
