"i was not happy with this recipe.. the puffs were much smaller than i expected.. and hard to work with .. not worth all the effort, altho still tasty not worth all the effort to me"
"Yum, Yum, Yum!!! Good for your grandaughter. This is soooo good, very elegant too, can be dressed up or down as the meal dictates. Don't discard the tops, put them back on and add a topping. Try it before you rate it. Not fair otherwise & a waste of time for those of us wanting an honest review."
"I an interested in nutrition info...Want to try for a lunch where there is a person who needs to know nutrition info....."
"I don't see how it matters that the puff recipe is the same for that of eclairs. There is no sugar in the puff pastry recipe, making this very versatile for dessert, breakfast, AND dinner recipes. I will be using this puff pastry recipe instead of buying the frozen kind for a host of different recipes. Thank you for sharing!"
"Great combination! You can do a lot of different things with puff pastry. Thanks for sharing this recipe."
