Fallen Puff Of Pastry.

I wish I had pictures for you, but they were all eaten so quickly! Tonight, I came home to Butterbeer-inspired eclairs. They were flipping good, despite my distaste for butterscotch.

Apparently, the eclair bread fell, so my roomie ended up stacking them instead of filling them. Even so, the texture on the bread was fabulous. The filling was some glorious concoction half-made up from a whoopie pie recipe and a Butterbeer cupcake recipe, then drizzled with a butterscotch ganache. It was some serious win.

I actually can’t stand butterscotch, which means that most Butterbeer recipes are of no use to me. It makes me sad, because it is such an integral part of the HP fandom, and to not be able to celebrate with everyone else just sucks. However, I’ve been lucky recently in that I’ve found a few alternative recipes that, while incorporating the flavors, don’t completely squick me out, so I’m able to partake. Deliciousness is good.

I’m still a bit wrung out from seeing HP&DH2. I just don’t really know what to say. I’m just hoping that the feeling mellows some before Dragon*Con, as I really would rather not be a gibbering mess if I’m lucky enough to see Matthew Lewis again. (Neville grew up pretty, y/y?)
