How to Make Strawberry Cream Puffs
Preheat your oven to 425 F or 210 C degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large saucepan over medium heat place in the water, butter, and salt. When it comes to a boil, add in the flour and with wooden spoon mix well until soft dough forms. Set aside from heat and add in the eggs, one at a time mixing well with a spoon until each egg is fully incorporated with the batter. Transfer the dough in pastry bag tipped with a round piping tip.
Transfer the dough in the bag and pipe out 1 to 1 ½ inch dollops onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake them for about 10 minutes at 425 F and then reduce the heat to 350 to bake them all through. Allow them to cool once baked, so you can cut them in half, and you can fill them with the strawberry filling later. Cool completely.
In a mixing bowl, mix mascarpone cheese, condensed milk, and heavy whipping cream all together until stiff peaks form. Add in the sliced strawberries and mix until combined. Fill each puff with the strawberry cream and dust it with icing sugar to serve. Enjoy.
