International Cream Puff Day

Who says the celebration has to stop after New Year’s Day? January 2nd brings plenty of reason to celebrate because it is International Cream Puff Day! Cream puffs were invented in Europe way back in the 1500’s and introduced to America in the 1800’s. These wonderful pastries are delicious, easy and fun to make!

International Cream Puff Day

Back when I was in school, cream puffs were a favorite in home economics class (which is now usually called FACS (Family and Consumer Sciences.) They were such a hit with the students, we made them about 3 times over the school year. To this day I still love making them.

Just boil water, butter, salt and add flour. Then beat in eggs and drop onto a baking sheet and bake. After baked, fill the center with your choice of whip cream or ice cream and don’t forget to sprinkle with powdered sugar and chocolate to elevate them even more.

These are a fun treat to make with the kids! Celebrate the day and make a batch of delicious cream puffs on January 2nd.  Looking for a recipe? I’ve got you covered on that too!
