Happy St; Joseph's Day everyone!

Here's a great recipe for St. Joseph's cream puff my Mom made twice a year. They are soooooooo good you must try them. Enjoy!

Sweet Treat

Mom's all time favorite dessert. Cream Puffs are not as difficult to make as one might think. The puff pastry can be made ahead of time and you can now use instant custard or pudding for the filling. Years ago Mom made homemade custard for the filling which is really tricky and a little time consuming to make. Instant fillings will give you the same delicious results.

Even though Mom just made these for St. Joseph's Day and Christmas, this dessert is great any time of the year. The crusty pastry filled with custard was so good I could never resist waiting for them to cool down before I would eat at least a half a dozen of them................ Read More
