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?}

    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. 

    1. So glad you enjoy them, too! PS I loooove vanilla as well. Thank you so much for coming back to share!
