I grew up in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and adored the treat from the German bakeries known locally as mud pies. It was a flatish, round pastry with a chocolate pastry cream swirled in. I don't think it was a choux paste kind of thing, because as a child, I hated eclairs, but loved the mud pies. Any thoughts? If anyone on this wonderful forum is from Sheboygan, these were sold out the back door of Johnson's bakery at 2am. (In Sheboyganese, the phrase was.."We're going down by Johnsons and buying some bakery...")
