MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 20, 2011

"I originally found this recipe in my first copy of Taste of Home magazine that I received in 1994. I have been using it ever since. When my children were small, I had to speed up meal prep, so I did substitute croissants for the puffs, but the puffs are delicious. I have always made 4X the recipe because they always disappeared so fast!"
