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.
