Method

Soak the gelatin in 1 tbsp (15 ml) cold water for 10 minutes. Combine the raspberries and quark. Heat the gelatin in a small saucepan and dissolve. Add a little of the raspberry mixture to the gelatin, then quickly stir the gelatin into the raspberries. Refrigerate.


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Combine the water, butter, sugar and salt, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, stir in flour, and beat until smooth. Heat again quickly, stirring con­stantly, then pour into a bowl. Gradually beat in baking powder and eggs, one at a time, until the batter is shiny and forms long, stiff peaks.


Put the batter in a pastry bag with a large nozzle and pipe 10 small mounds of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parch­ment paper. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven, cut in half and leave to cool. Fill the lower halves with the raspberry mix­ture and top with the upper halves.
