Truffle Cream filling for gougeres

I'm trying to make truffle cream as filling for my gougeres. Any recommendation for the recipe for such consistency? Please help! Thank you!

  1. this is a pretty standard (sweet) pastry creme recipe:

    6 Egg yolks
    125 g sugar
    40 g Corn flour (or ordinary flour)
    1 vanilla pod split
    500 ml milk

    are you making a gougere pie or many gougeres, like petit choux?
    i suggest you reduce the sugar by 1/3 and add a dash of salt (you can taste the creme as you stir), then infuse the mixture with a few drops of truffle oil or truffle jus if your truffles are from the bottle.

    alternately, you could attempt a truffle ice cream and stuff your savory pastries with that right before serving.
