Cream 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.

Easier than making individual cream puffs. I found this recipe on an egg carton from Aldi's!
Yummy dessert! I love the vanilla pudding as filling, but I think chocolate pudding filling is just as good.

Crust will puff up and sink down when cool.

This is the same as my cream puff recipe that I have used for many years. But instead of spreading the dough into a cake pan, I drop it by heaping Tablespoon onto a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown. Let cool and cut off about 1/3 of the top. Fill with your choice of pudding type filling (I will have to try your cream cheese filling.) Replace the top and sift a little powdered sugar over the tops. Refrigerate and serve cold. Great recipe for potluck dinners.
