THURSDAY, MAT T, 1988 (ARK.)' COURIER NCWl PAGE V3BB& Easy Entertainment: Dessert and Coffee By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor i "Want an easy way to entertain? Ask your friends to come after dinner for dessert and coffee. What to serve? We borrowed this idea from "Delectable Desserts" by Ann Seranne (Doubleday) — a book that's crammed full of recipes for divine tasting dishes. These cream puff swans, fancy as they look, are simple to make, so don't let them scare you! And just because it's springtime, serve them with Strawberry Sauce. Have the coffee to go with the dessert hot, strong and clear, and everyone will be happy. We found Miss Seranne's directions for making the cream puff swans work well. Here they are: CR AM PUFF SWANS Ingredients; ^ cup hot water, K cup butter, pinch salt, % teaspoon sugar, IS cup plus 1 tablespoon all- purpose flour, 2 eggs (unbeaten). Method: Pour the hot water over the butter in a saucepan and stir until the butter is melted. Add the salt and sugar and bring the mixture to a rapid boil. Add the flour all at once, raise the saucepan over the heat, and stir vigorously until • the mixture comes away cleanly from the sides of the pan and forms a ball in the center. Remove from the fire and add the eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously with a wooden spoon after each addition until the batter Is thick and glossy. The batter must be thick enough to hold its shape and if the eggs are very large it may not be necessary to add all of the last egg. Maybe half, maybe three-quarters of the last egg is all the paste will take and still hold its shape. Or if the eggs are small, it may be necessary to add an additional yolk. Sometimes the stiffly beaten white of an egg worked into the final paste will give it just the right consistency. To make the swans drop 4 large tablespoons of the paste in mounds on a buttered baking sheet, 3 inches apart. Press one side of each mound with the spoon, to flatten and elon- gate it slightly (this makes the tail of the swan). Put the remaining pastry Into a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tube about the size of a dime. Press out S-shaped pieces onto a buttered pie plate to simulate swans' necks. Bake puffs and neck- shaed pieces in a very hot oven (450 degrees P) until puffed to twice their size. Reduce the oven temperature to 300 P and bake until they are dry. The necks must be removed sooner than the puffs. To fashion swans, cut one-third from the top of each large puff and fill the puff with whipped cream, sweetened and flavored to taste. Cut the top into halves and press them Into the filling on either side to represent the wings. Insert the neck into the filling. LAST STRAW?-Adding a touch of whimsy or whatever to the summer fashion picture, Schiaparelli comes up with these braided-straw eyeglasses with pigtails. This Paris model wears them and a hat in the same bright yellow straw. With Prices Down, Now's Time To Enjoy Favorite Beef Cuts Plan a beef dinner and you'll please the whole family.
