These creampuffs take just 10 minutes hands on time and are perfect for those who want a little something sweet but not too sweet.   These creampuffs are perfect for entertaining.  They can be made into bite-size treats.  Make as few or many as you want!

If I’m not serving the creampuffs immediately, I prep them by making and refrigerating the cream and baking the puffs.  I allow them to slightly cool before filling them with cream, but if I’m serving later, I wait to fill them until just before we’re ready to enjoy.  

You can serve them with strawberries, raspberries, a dusting of powdered sugar or even a drizzle of chocolate sauce – you truly cannot go wrong! The flaky pastry pairs perfectly with the slightly sweet cream.

  5. Fill with cream. {I keep disposable pastry bags on hand because, let’s face it, I bake a lot more often than I should, but you can also cut the tip of a ziplock bag for pretty puffs or drop a dollop by the spoonful. Just try to resist licking the spoon, alright?}
