Strawberry Cheesecake Cream Puffs
Everyone knows cream puffs, filled with cream, and sometimes topped with a chocolate glaze, but the amazing thing about cream puffs recipes is that you can doctor them to flavours that you enjoy whether they are sweet or savoury. This strawberry cheesecake cream puffs recipe is an excellent rendition of the classic cream puff because it gives you an unctuous, tangy cream cheese cream and the sweet brightness of strawberry jam. The best baking recipes are the desserts that allow you to be creative and any dessert recipe using choux pastry dough, which is cooked on the stove and lightened with eggs, is bound to produce a delicious result. Choux pastry dough is the same base that is used for éclair recipes or croquembouche recipes, not to mention doughnut recipes like French crullers and churros. Once you tackle this strawberry cheesecake cream puffs recipe, you can feel free to use the dough base to create any of the above desserts.
These strawberry cream puffs are one of the best dessert recipes ever, because they take the classic pairing of strawberries and cheesecake, and meld them into one dish. The thing that people enjoy so much about desserts is their combinations of different flavours and textures, and this cream puff recipe does just that by providing you with a bite of airy buttery pastry and creamy filling. Whoever you serve these cream puffs to will have a hard time eating just one. If you are looking for homemade recipes for desserts, these cream puffs are much easier to make than they appear. Cream puffs are just a matter of cooking flour, butter, salt, and water on the stove, then adding eggs to lighten the batter. Once the dough is mixed, it is piped into rounds and baked for a short time until puffed up and golden. That will be the most difficult part of making this strawberry cream puff recipe and next thing you know you will be assembling the puffs of pastry into little sandwiches of strawberry jam and cream. The cream puffs are also an excellent choice if you are looking for dinner party recipe ideas for a summer bash when strawberries are in season. Rather than using store-bought strawberry jam, you could use your homemade version for these cream puffs or even just stew some strawberries and sugar on the stove for a quick strawberry jam.

These cream puff desserts, dusted with powdered sugar, and with a pretty piped swirl of cream will look as elegant as anything in a fancy pastry shop, and your guests will be so impressed. For the best appearance, consider piping the cream cheese filling with a star-shaped piping tip. You simply have to pipe a rosette of cream onto each cream puff by starting to pipe around the outside and then in the centre. When you top these off with their caps, don’t squish the tops down, or you will ruin your expert piping skills.
