Having Cream puffs on New Year’s was a tradition in the Bedner family when they were growing up. Not just any old cream puff. All homemade with real cream from the bulk tank whipped to perfection by their Mom. I may not make them on New Year’s day but I still make them around then. They are better than ANY other cream puff!
