    For fans of My Neighbor Totoro who prefer savory items, add a bit of Gruyère to the choux paste and you’ll have adorable, edible Totoro Gougères. You’ll probably want to make the eyes with sour cream and caviar or something, in that case.

    Seriously though, profiteroles (cream puffs) are nice and all, but gougères are one of the best things in the world. There’s a good, illustrated step-by-step here. I’ve always used the method in Larousse Gastronomique, if you have access to a copy. All of the choux pastry variations are actually pretty easy.

    #5, monstrinho_do_biscoito: How old? My son has been watching (and re-watching, and re-watching) this since he was a little before two years old. Makes ME smile every time…

    A major point in favor of the worship of Totoro… This looks so much tastier than a communion wafer.
