Lemon Cream Puffs

Recipe from Jenn Johns (Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio)

Makes 8-10 cream puffs  

Ingredients:

  • prepared puff pastry (can be found in frozen food section of grocery store)

  • ¼ cup lemon pie filling or lemon curd

  • 1 cup whipping cream

  • Fresh fruit (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, kiwis etc)

Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Roll puff pastry dough out thinly on a floured surface, and cut into 2”-3” rounds.

  3. Place on parchment lined baking tray, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.  Let cool completely on wire rack.  

  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, whip whipping cream on high until soft peaks form.  Add lemon filling and continue to whisk until stiff peaks develop.  

  5. Place lemon cream into a piping bag fitted with a large tip.  

  6. Separate puff pastry rounds into two pieces, and pipe lemon cream filling onto the bottom half.  Top bottom half with fresh fruit.  Place top half back on, using an additional dollop of cream to secure.  

  7. Lightly dust with icing sugar and top with additional fresh fruit.  Serve and enjoy.  

  8. These are best consumed immediately, but can be frozen, without the fruit, in a sealed container for 1-2 months.
