Today is the first of my posts for the week to get you ready for Easter. I thought it would be fun to start with dessert. You can even make these lemon cream puffs ahead of time. Then, freeze them and allow to thaw the day you want to serve them. I adapted this recipe from one I found on Soup Belly. It brings in that citrus flavor I have been loving lately.
Who doesn’t love a good cream puff? And this one is filled with a lusciously light lemon cream. It would be a perfect addition to your Easter celebration (or even a wedding or bridal shower). Light, lemony, and delicious! You could also easily substitute orange or lime zest to get and orange or lime cream puff. I think the orange filling would be excellent then drizzled with a little chocolate.
Here is a little peak into the remaining post this week for Easter – a potato dish just perfect to go with your Easter ham, a quick and easy wheat roll, an easy asparagus dish, and a citrus poppy seed cake that would work for breakfast, brunch or as a dessert. After that, I’ll even have a recipe to use up you leftover ham and hard boiled eggs.
