I’ve tried probably 2 flavors of cream puffs in my life and that is now definitely going to change! I love how straight forward and easy to follow the book is, she even has a step by step video for making the Pate a Choux (pastry shell) that is so helpful. Another great resource is this template she made that you can print out and use to pipe them out.
