The Lemon Cream Puffs are such a huge hit with my family. I thought it a good time to change the filling. And these Strawberry Cream Puffs are already a favorite with everyone.

It is not Strawberry season right now in South-Africa and I really did not want to use frozen Strawberries.

Jam (or Jelly as you might know it) was the next obvious choice and we always have a can or two in the pantry. It is my husband’s favorite type of jam.

These Cream Puffs are ideal for Valentine’s Day and they are so quick and easy to make too. Perfect for the kids to take to school the following day and hand out to their friends.

Or if you are working, some for your colleagues, as Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year.

Obviously the delicious cream filling is not supposed to leak out as in the photo, I only wanted you to see the actual filling.

Once the pastry has baked, cooled and you are ready to add the cream, all you do is use a sharp knife and gently slid in between the baked layers (more or less in the center).

Ever so lightly push the two sides a little towards each other. A little pocket will open up and now you can use an icing tube/bag/bottle or even a teaspoon to add your filling and push it to the center.
