I was searching for a torte recipe for a special occasion. One that would be different from any other tortes I made before, yet not too difficult to prepare. I selected a recipe for Irene’s Torte (I modified it slightly to conform to my taste), from a Ukrainian Traditional Cookery, by Savella Stechishin. I find lots of great recipes in her cook book.
The dough for cream puffs is rather simple, but the preparation technique is interesting, since it requires cooking of some of the dough ingredients, before turning them into the actual dough for baking.
