Twenty-seven cream puffs were shared with co-workers, and it only took about 20 minutes for them to disappear. I do not usually make note of the amount of time it takes people to consume my food but I would definitely call this recipe a success.
Luckily, I stored away these three lone puffs for photographic purposes or else they would have been devoured with the rest...and no, I did not eat them all myself. Although, these cream puffs were so delicious that I easily could have hoarded them away for selfish reasons.
Light and airy pastry shells, filled with a french vanilla custard and topped with a chocolate ganache. They may look and sound a bit difficult but you will be surprised by the ingredients and ease of directions. The only consideration should be to the time-span in which you are looking to serve these little puppies. Due to a short fridge-life, I would serve the cream puffs within 1-2 days of baking.
