Cream Puff refers to a hollow round crisp choux pastry which is split in half, then filled with a loads of whipped cream or vanilla pudding or custard. They are usually topped with melted chocolate.

Cream Puff is also called Profiterole or Choux à la crème or Choux Chantilly. It is one of the beloved and iconic pastry in France.

I will always remember this pastry as my Ninang Letty Mercado (my Godmother) used to buy some pieces everytime it was my birthday when I was a small girl together with a newly sewed dress. I always celebrated my birthday with her and she had Cream Puffs for me all the time. It was a real treat for me as a child. The version that she always gave me was with melted caramel on top
