    I made these for a Super Bowl party and ended up with most of them still left afterwards. Not a big hit. Seems like they are missing something. They weren't worth the time and effort it took to make them.

    These puffs were great, but the filling needed something else, so we added capers. I also made these puffs into a dessert delight by adding chocolate pudding topped with whip cream.
