Substitute strawberries or blackberries for a different spin on this delightful dish.
Pastry In a food processor, pulse together flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Add butter and pulse until mixture is in coarse crumbs; drizzle in cream. Using fork, gently stir just until combined (mixture will be lumpy).
Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead 4 times (mixture will hold together but lumps will remain).
Gently pat or roll out dough into 1-inch thick circle. Using cookie cutter, cut out 8 rounds. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Brush with cream; sprinkle with sugar.
Bake in 425°F oven until puffed and golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
Blueberry Filling In bowl, gently toss together blueberries, sugar, orangeflavoured liqueur, lemon zest and lemon juice; set aside. In separate bowl, whip cream with icing sugar; fold in vanilla bean.
To assemble, split warm puffs in half horizontally. Dollop bottom halves with whipped cream. Top each with about ⅓ cup of the blueberry mixture and replace the tops. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.
