    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.

    I couldn't believe how easy these were. I did skip the mint since I garnished with strawberries, but other than that, I followed to a T. Thanks!
