As for the pot roast...get a fatty piece of meat, or only do it for a few hours as opposed to all day. Mostly, again, ignoring it is the key.
Sorry, Alix, I got mixed up - I think it was Kades needing help with pastry but she got it. I was lousy at pastry until I went to school.

I have even tried your recipe for pot roast....twice and it didn't work. The meat I have used has been fatty and I do ignore it. Well, will just have to keep trying!

The main point of choux is that you have to add your eggs in after it has cooled a bit AND you need a lot of arm power to stir it until the right consistency. I will send you my recipe and method.

I hardly ever make big ones, or sweet ones, Most often make savory gougeres with herbs and/or cheese. Big ones of those are often used in Burgundy where the English would make Popovers.

Mom used to fill cream puffs with the tastiest custard! and sometimes chocolate custard.

I've never tried a custard it sounds wonderful tho. We seem to go through whipped cream as if were water. I like the idea of small savory ones, will give some a try soon.
Thanks for the idea.
