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.

Just try to resist licking the spoon, alright?}How to make cream puffs| easy Valentine's Day dessert recipe

Sweet week will continue Friday with S’mores Gooey Butter Cake. It’s the cozier way to enjoy the campfire favorite because, as much as I want to, I don’t believe the groundhog.
