I was really pressed for time and did not make the filling, but the puffs are heavenly. After preparing the puffs, I mixed a small box of instant vanilla pudding with 8 oz lite cool whip. When ready to serve, I sliced the puff in half, scooped some of the pudding mix into the puff and topped with fresh chopped strawberries. Tasts like a dessert you spent a lot of time on. Everyone loved the recipe.

Absolutely awesome is right! I made these for Easter and everyone loved them. The filling wasn't to sweet but was so creamy. I can't wait to make these again and have decided that they will be on my menu for the 4th of July. Thank you Marie for another recipe for my keeper file.
