Calumet Cream Puffs / Calumet Vannbakkels

A recipe from the “Calumet Cook Book” published in 1921
Calumet Cream Puffs / Calumet Vannbakkels

Back in my childhood cream puffs, particularly cream puff wreaths, were regarded as just about the most delicious kind of pastries one could be served. But as I’ve told you before, little Ted had a sweet tooth the size of a small South American country and as you will notice, the recipe contains no sugar. My old female relatives who were famous for their cream puffs were even stingy with the sugar in the whipped cream.

As our family were on our way to visit one of these old stingy bats little Ted was praying for anything but cream puffs. But what do you think happened.  Those old bats always had to show off with their damned cream puffs. The fifties were hard I tell you, just ask anyone who was there – Ted   😉
