Top Review by Linda R.

I had searched for a fabulous cream puff filling fit a very long time, and finally found this one. I'm searching no more! These are outstanding. They are simply decadent, leaving you longing for more. Friends actually asked me to make these for their wedding! I did, and only switched out the strawberry jam for raspberry, due to an allergy. I also drizzled the tops with melted chocolate, and dusted them with powdered sugar. Delicious!
