Churro Cream Puffs

Churros meet cream puffs in this creative and delicious treat thought up by Barbara Schieving of Barbara Bakes. All I can say is where have these been all my life!!

They are one of many irresistible cream puff creations you can find in her beautifully photographed, genius new cookbook: Simply Sweet Dream Puffs: Shockingly Easy Fun-Filled Treats! I’ve absolutely loved cream puffs from the very first time I bit into one as a child and I’ve been hooked ever since, so this cookbook has my name written all over it.

It’s filled with so many unique variations on the classic cream puff, with flavors like s’mores, mango, rocky road, black cherry, pumpkin pie and coconut almond. You’ll also find fun twists on the classic eclair with flavors like strawberry cheesecake, tiramisu and lemon meringue.

Does all this talk have you drooling yet? Has it got you craving cream puffs? I know when I look at this book I can’t stop thinking about how many of the different flavors I can’t wait to try, they all look simply dreamy and Barbara has done such an amazing job on this book!

It’s so creative and anyone who likes cream puffs needs this cookbook! It will open a new world of cream puff flavors for you! 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.

    Jaclyn, these cream puffs are amazing! How many tried did you have before you have achieved such result? I am trying it 100%, just wanted to let you know that your recipe is much appreciated.

  • Meg

    Question, would normal whipped cream work for this? I’m guessing no…right?

      It doesn’t whip up the same as heavy cream does because it doesn’t have as much fat. Sometimes you can get soft peaks from it, it just doesn’t whip up as well.
