Lemon Cream Puffs
By Cassie * 1lovetocook1x
These lovely treats are in my Feb/March 2004 TOH issue.
They are delicious. I found when I made them that I wanted the filling a but more tart, so I added an extra 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice.
Immediately split puffs and remove tops; discard soft dough from inside. Set puffs and tops aside to cool.
In a large bowl, beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form; fold into lemon mixture. Fill cream puffs; replace tops. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Do you have the name of this particular cookbook, or is it a personal recipe book of your collections? If it's a cookbook, I'd like to look for it at the library. In the last six months or so, I've gone from checking out murder mysteries at the library to checking out cookbooks--lol! That's what JAP has done to me!

The books I am referring to in this instance are my Taste of Home magazines I have received over the past 15 years...so many delicious recipes. I have made maybe 25 percent of them..lol...so many more to make.
