Raspberry Religieuses Class ✩

A special collaboration class with artist Ann Shen! Come learn how to make these gorgeous raspberry religieuses! They are a stacked cream puff filled with a creamy vanilla and raspberry pastry cream and baked with a crunchy sweet topping. It makes for the perfect mix of textures.

We’ll be learning how to make choux pastry, one of the most versatile pastry doughs. Little circles of craquelin, a dough made from butter, flour, and raw sugar, are placed on top which helps them keep a perfectly round shape, adds a punch of color, and tastes delicious. To fill our gorgeous pastries, we’ll make a pastry cream, a beautiful custard, and divide it in two to make raspberry and vanilla. The pastry cream is flavored with freeze-dried raspberry powder so this can easily be changed to strawberry too!

Join me for the pastry class and then sign up for Ann Shen’s painting class and use one of your religieuses (or a photo, if they’ve all been eating :D) as a still-life model. Click here to check out and sign up for the painting class with Ann!
