    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    Basic dough recipe uses the Sun Flour Mills brand Gluten Free Pastry Flour, but I like to use the filling recipes from Rose Levy's Cake Bible. This recipe is posted with Rose's basic filling, plus several other flavored cream options. This gluten free dough makes such amazing cream puffs that it's hard to believe they're gluten free. Storing and shelf life are short though, so plan to make them the day you'll be serving them.
