Have you ever had a gigantic cream puff at a bakery? Oh so Delicious but huge! These are little or actually normal size, but pack a punch in taste, and will leave you just as satisfied!
Warning!! Read no further if you're opposed to using real BUTTER, real cream and real eggs. All three are used in this recipe and without shame. 🙂
108 calories and 3 Weight Watchers Points+ aren't bad for a decadent dessert you can serve your family on a special holiday.
White whole wheat flour is used here although if you only have whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour I believe they would would equally as well. Do not substitute gluten free flour for this, it will not work. I've tried no other flours so I can't say whether almond or coconut or spelt would work either.
Once cooled the top slices off easy then fill without whatever yumminess you want inside. You could use yogurt, fresh fruit, coconut cream, cool whip (although I don't use it as it has so much artificial junk in it) or just stick with the recipe because it's quite perfect as is.
Hubby and the kids LOVED these! You'll never know whole wheat flour is used here when using white whole wheat. You can serve this to anyone on Easter and they'll never know sugar is not added either. They are perfect party finger food!
