Cream Puff Filling

Get Social With Little Apple Life!

This recipe from my grandmother's recipe box is the filling that completes our family favorite, her Cream Puffs.

If you are going to make Cream Puffs you are going to need a recipe for the filling! Of course, you can always use Vanilla Pudding to fill the puffs and if you choose to, I understand. We all have to cut corners however we can. However, my thought is if you are going to make the Cream Puffs from scratch, you might as well make the filling!

This is another recipe from my grandmother's recipe box and this filling completes the family favorite of her Cream Puffs. The filling brings the perfect amount of sweetness that the puffs need. I promise, both recipes are quick, it honestly takes longer for them to cool than anything else.

Feel free to mix the Cream Puff filling the day ahead, I honestly think it tastes better the next day.

The best part about this recipe is that it can be used if you decide to make Eclairs versus Cream Puffs out of your batter. Feel free to mix this a day ahead, I honestly think that it tastes better the next day.

Mix up a quick batch and have the perfect dessert. Cream Puffs are also fun to serve with a topping bar. Have a spread of Whipped Topping, Chocolate Syrup, fruit and more for everyone to make their own.

Cream Puff Filling

This is my grandma's recipe for Cream Puff filling. It gives the "puffs" the perfect amount of sweetness and completes one of our favorite desserts that she would make. Top these with whipped cream, chocolate ganache or simply some Hershey's syrup and you have a dessert everyone will enjoy!

Notes

You probably will notice that my instructions do not call for the butter. You could mix it in with the flour and sugar mixture if you want, but it is not neccessary. It is completely up to you. It will add a bit more shine to your filling. It is 100% a personal preference.
