I'm so excited about this next recipe! I nailed it on my first attempt and was really pleasantly surprised with the results! The puffs turned out big, golden brown, almost flaky, and very similar to the gluten-infested version! These puffs are very simple (with no sugar added) and make a great base for whatever you choose to fill them with!
Whenever I think of making Cream Puffs I always have to snicker to myself. When my sister and I were a lot younger I was trying to teach her how to make these. The only problem was she isn't much of a direction follower -so all of the ingredients ended up in the saucepan at the same time (which made a big yucky blob instead of the correct recipe.) I helped her, taught her how you need to add ingredients at specific times in order for the recipe to turn out, and then I let her try it again.
Then, she did the same exact thing again!
All the ingredients ended up in the pan in a big yucky blob! We had to just laugh and I decided to start teaching her to cook with 1 step recipes instead.
This gluten-free version is no exception to following the directions! Be sure to read the directions on when each ingredient is to be added before attempting. ;) You'll get better results.

I'm still on the search for a really good strawberry shortcake recipe. The only problem, I'm not really sure I have ever tried the gluten-infested version! All the shortcake recipes I have tried are dense and blah.
These cream puffs make a great replacement. I filled mine with strawberries and my Coconut Whip Cream.
You can use this same recipe to make gluten free eclairs as well! Simply spoon the dough into a decorating bag with a round 1/2 inch tip (or place into a ziplock back and cut a 1/2 inch slit in the corner) and pipe 6 strips of dough that measure 4 inches long, 1 inch wide, and 3/4 inch high. Bake, cool, and split just like you would a cream puff then fill with whip cream or pudding. Then cover with a chocolate glaze.
I haven't mastered these cream puffs dairy free as of yet but I'll keep working on it! If you do, be sure to share with us!
