Cream Puffs

Cream puffs, with their light, airy pastry and rich cream filling, are a delightful treat that can add a touch of elegance to any occasion. These delicate pastries are made using a dough called choux pastry, which puffs up in the oven, leaving a hollow center that can be filled with sweetened whipped cream or pastry cream.
