Dream Cream Puffs

Recipe by Troop Angel

I found this recipe on the MSN website...I didn't see anything quite like it on here so decided to post it even though I haven't tried it yet. But it looks super easy and yummy and I can't wait to try it! Note: the recipe calls for a cool time and a stand time of 1 hour each.

I liked this recipe, I did only use the pastry though. I don't know if I did something wrong whipping up the pastry, but the puffs did not turn out quite the way I was expecting. They were very small, I guess I am just used to bigger puffs. The next time I make these I will probably double the dough recipe for bigger puffs. Thank you for a nice recipe though, the flavor was good.
