Gluten-Free Cream Puffs

A cream puff only needs one thing. A whipped cream for the inside.

Gluten-Free Cream Puffs

For me all a cream puff needs is simple thick, slightly sweetened whipped cream.

Do you agree?

This year I think I will make gluten-free cream puffs for Christmas morning. Coffee, tea, cream puffs and fresh fruit. Wouldn’t that be a nice breakfast while opening up the Christmas presents?
