Cream Puff anyone?

I’ve never really tasted a cream puff that I actually liked.  So I decided to try my hand at making them myself.  Someone has become such a food snob!

Guess who now likes cream puffs!  They were a little misshapen and next time I will take more care in forming them (and lay a few eclairs while I’m at it) so they will be purdier.  For my first time, though, I am well pleased.  I macerated some strawberries, made a lemon French pastry cream, and whipped up some ganache and threw together the beauties you see below.  I’m in love!
