Candy Cane Cream Puffs
Not necessarily a holiday staple, cream puffs go sadly unnoticed this time of year. It's a shame, really, because cream puffs can be just as festive as any sparkle-flecked, snowflake-shaped, frosting-painted sugar cookie. And they're easier to make than you might think. A touch of mint extract and a smattering of crushed candy cane bits make these classic pastries perfect for the holiday season. Celebrate by going big!
