While this dessert is traditionally made as a ring, split and filled, it is easier to serve to crowds as individual puffs. Paris-Brest is a kind of cream puff with a rich almond cream filling. While you can make the praline powder and the crème pralinée ahead of time, it is necessary to make the puffs on the day of serving. Assemble just before eating, and garnish with whipped cream.
