    Gingerbee's Note:

    Aunt Lucy always had some "specialities" for you to taste, even when you just popped in on her for a visit. I wondered how it was never a fuss or bother to her? I popped in often; oooooo'd and ahhhhhhh'd and she'd give me her recipe. I tried it and you know! it isn't that bothersome and so, when you want something it is, cream puffs a la "Aunt Lucy"!

      This is a great recipe when there are lots of mouths to feed! I have 7 children and they loved these and there was more than enough to go around.

      Simple to make, I've never made them before, and they turned out ok. Could be a little sweater since I was stuffing them with boston creme, but a good freezable puff that can be filled with anything!
