Story Behind this Recipe
It's so easy! I wanted to make cream puffs filled with various flavors, so I came up with this!
If you strain the mixture, it will make it smoother. The custard cream doesn't keep well, so just make what you need. Also, I don't recommend you store this in the refrigerator. The moisture will come out in the refrigerator and change the texture.
