As a child, I remember making cream puffs with my grandma and my dad. We took a short cut in the filling department though and just used Cool Whip instead of a Bavarian cream. I like them both ways, but the Cool Whip does lighten up the end product, not only in calories and fat content but they are not as filling. They are super easy to make so I hope you try them out and let me know what you think! I got the recipe from the Today Show website a few years ago.
