Cream Puffs

Cream Puffs seem to be one of those universal desserts that everyone enjoys! This recipe is a classic Choux Pastry that is also super easy!

While the recipe is slightly different than the Cream Puffs that you buy today in the stores or enjoy during celebratory events, these are delicious! Don't let fancy French words like Choux Pastry scare you off from trying this recipe, this classic Cream Puff recipe is quick and super easy. The same can be said as the Cream Puff filling my grandma made for her Cream Puffs.

Honestly, when I found this recipe among the hundreds in her recipe box was the moment when the lightbulb went off and I knew I needed to post her recipes so they would not be forgotten.

Serve these Cream Puffs with some whipped topping like my grandma would, or with a little Chocolate Ganache on top and they will be devoured! This recipe is a classic Choux Pastry, that can also be used to make Eclairs as well. You will just need to adjust shape and baking time!

Cream Puffs are the perfect dessert for a crowd!

Notes

It is good to test a batch to make sure the temp and time are correct for your oven. 
Do not place too many puffs on your cooking sheet, since this dough has a lot of moisture you do not want to overload your oven. If you do they will not rise properly.
When in a hurry, Hershey's syrup works perfectly in a pinch for a topping!
