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.

  1. the quantity of the ingredients in the recipe were cut off. I’d love to know how much cream and marscapone cheese to use. Thanks! So cute!

  2. So cute! These made me hungry.

  3. Can these be cut with a cookie cutter – like a christmas tree??

  4. I’d like to ask what is “c” at ingredients ? How much is that ? Thank you.

  5. Do you have a recipe for the puff pastry or did I miss it?

  7. My coworkers refer to these things as puff pastry crack. I made it once because of how short the list of ingredients were and short the directions are about three months ago. I only tweaked it a bit by adding vanilla flavoring. Never had anything requested over and over more. Easy, elegant, delicious, light, and addictive on so many levels.
