lime-coconut cream puffscream puffs

cream puff recipe

cream puffsI used a tablespoon to spoon the dough balls onto the baking sheet and it seemed to be the perfect size. With these ingredients the recipe said I would get 12 puffs but I ended up getting about 15. For the filling, I used cream cheese and lime pie filling mixed to taste. I didn’t want it too sweet so the cream cheese helped out but it’s definitely not necessary if you want it sweeter. After that, add a layer of shredded coconut, put the top of the puff back on, top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings to look super fancy and you’re done!
