Strawberry Cream Puffs


Tip: Cream puffs are tricky. Do not open your oven while baking or they may deflate. Use the oven light to check for color. When cooling, cut a small slit on the side about 2/3 of the way up. This will create a steam vent and help keep the puff. Use the slit as a guideline when cutting the tops off later.
