We had a party to attend so I decided to make cream puffs being that they’re pretty and delicious.  I made a strawberry and cream filling since it’s summer, and strawberries are everywhere.  For the dough, I added a hint of vanilla, and the filling was sweetened cream cheese, cream and fresh strawberries were folded in.  Cream puffs are elegant, and being that I made them small, guests could pop one in their mouth and enjoy.  If you’re looking for an easy, and delicious dessert for your next gathering, make sure you try these cream puffs or I have a recipe for chocolate cream puffs too!
