Vanilla cream puff pastry cups (video recipe)

When my kids saw these vanilla cream puff pastry cups their reaction was: “Wow! How pretty they are! Can we eat them?” :).

Flaky, tender and so flavorful, these vanilla cream puff pastry cups are almost too cute to be eaten. But they also smell so good that you’ll pass over their cuteness and after the first bite you won’t be able to stop eating.

These vanilla cream puff pastry cups are also incredibly easy to prepare.

As I was saying in the meat stuffed puff pastry cups recipe, I prefer to use store-bought puff pastry because I save a lot of time.

Vanilla pastry cream is very easy to prepare with a handful of ingredients and I prefer to make it from scratch.

And now that we have puff pastry and vanilla pastry cream we can shape the puff pastry cups.

To do that, you should start by rolling out the dough, then cut into squares.

Then place the puff pastry squares into a muffin tin and into each cup place paper muffin cups and 1 tablespoon of rice. This will stop puff pastry puffing on the inside.

Then bake until golden brown, allow to cool, fill the pastry cups with vanilla cream and top with fresh fruits. For vitamins :).

If you don’t like vanilla pastry cream you can replace it with chocolate pastry cream, with caramel pastry cream or with your favorite cream.

These vanilla cream puff pastry cups are very cute and absolutely delicious and they make the perfect dessert especially for kids parties.

The recipe makes 12 vanilla cream puff pastry cups.
