    I've made these a few times now. I never realized how easy fresh cream puffs are. Super easy, light, fluffy... A staple dessert recipe for this mama.

    First time ever making cream puffs. Turned out perfect! Definitely make again.

    Thank goodness for the review that said to keep at it. It didn't look like the eggs were going to incorporate, but I kept at it and it worked! Next time I will use my KitchenAid, for less of a workout. I had to lower the heat to 375°F as well as the peaks were burning but the puffs were still raw. And I made homemade bavarian cream instead of instant. But there were awesome and I will make them again!
