Pumpkin Custard Profiteroles with Maple Caramel

Pumpkin Custard Profiteroles with Maple Caramel, I really don’t know where to start. This one is too beautiful to eat. The pumpkin custard is excellent with the caramel and these may be the biggest hit to your Thanksgiving dinner. You may have some custard left over if you make the 16 small profiteroles that the recipe calls for, so go for it and make 8 large ones or double the dough that way you won’t have any custard left over. These are also great comfort food for the winter!
