Cream Cheese Puffs - 11/8/2007

One of my friends said he wanted to give me periodic challenges of making a dish featuring a particular ingredient. This past week he said it should be cream cheese. Initially I thought, wtf can you do with cream cheese other than cheesecake? I pondered over this for a few days and I came up with these:

Cream Cheese Puffs

The puffs are profiteroles filled with a cream cheese that was whipped with strawberry jam. On top is a raspberry coulis with a hint of lime juice. I love the combination of strawberry and lime, so I decided to use it here. I had some functional difficulties with my piping abilities, so not all of the puffs had a large amount of filling, but they came out pretty good.
