Made these for a friend's birthday a while back, just now getting around to posting about them. These are "Oh-Oh's", Thomas Keller's version of a Hostess' Ho-Ho. It's a chocolate biscuit rolled around sweetened vanilla whipped cream, then dipped in dark pâte à glacier (fancy magic shell, basically). These were challenging to make. It took a few times to get it right, and even then they weren't perfect, as the chocolate coating went on a bit thick. Nonetheless, they were delicious.
Just wanted to throw a quick post up to tell everyone to come out and support the Austin Bakes for West bake sale tomorrow, May the 4th. I have donated the white cheddar, bacon and chive scones you see above, as well as a couple dozen oatmeal raisin cookies, both recipes from the Bouchon Bakery cookbook. My goodies will be sold at Foreign & Domestic, 306 E. 53rd Street, but if you can't make it to that location, please come out and support the bake sale at one of the seven other locations throughout Austin, which are listed on Austin Bakes' website. All funds raised at the sale will go directly to AmeriCares for disaster relief work in West, Texas.
