Cream Puffs


Silver Feedback Medal for All Time! 451 Feedbacks

Cream Puffs on plateCream puffs are good anytime! They can be filled with custard, whipped cream, or pudding. I like to make the filling with 1/2 sugar free vanilla pudding mixed with 1/2 whipped cream which is unsweetened. That way there's no sugar, unless it's added as for the powdered sugar dusted on the tops.

  9. Take a big heaping Tablespoon full of your dough, and swipe it off the spoon onto your cooking sheet. Sort of make a twisty peak on the tops as the dough is swiped off with your finger from the spoon (twist optional); then bake.

  11. While the puffs are baking, you can make your instant pudding and your whipped cream in two separate bowls, then refrigerate.

  13. When the puffs are done, place them on a rack to cool, away from any drafts, as any cool air blowing on them will cause them to "un-puff" or flatten out.

  15. When they're cooled completely, cut just the upper third off the top (gently)of the ones you're going to eat right away. I am showing how the inside of the cut puff will have what's called a webbing or filament inside, and you just pick that out, there's very little. Set aside your puffs for now.

  19. Then fill the puffs you're going to eat right away with the pudding whipped cream mixture, and dust with powdered sugar, which is optional. Enjoy!

HAHAHAHA I am giggling with delight. This is truly remarkable and I love it! It's cute too because we can eat the same things at the same time, and have our chats, so it's almost like we are hanging out ;) Awww!

I'm loving this thread, ladies. :) Keep those twin recipes coming.

I have had that happen to me before. I've taken a bunch of pictures for a recipe only to approve a member's recipe before I get posted.

Usually, I wait a few weeks (or months) to publish my version. And I sent my sister to Atossa's Coconut Chicken soup recipe recently because it is so similar to one I make regularly.

I am chuckling because I can imagine that too Jess with all the recipes coming in, and then someone else just made the same thing, and of all the things to cook, yep :) That's wild! :)

We will keep them rolling in!! It's pretty cool how that happens, especially when they're not super common recipes like cream puffs and kabobs! :)
