In Italian, cream puffs are called “Bocconcini con Crema” or little mouthfuls of pastry with cream; gelato also makes a wonderful filling. Cream puffs are a very popular item to be served at weddings, birthdays, first communions, and other such celebrations. Serve them with coffee or an Italian liqueur. You can make the cream puffs in advance but do not fill them until a few hours before serving so that the puffs don’t get too soggy. Cover and refrigerate the puffs and cream separately until ready to fill.
