Expert Tips

Prepare and bake puffs up to a day ahead of time. Cool completely, then cover and refrigerate no longer than 24 hours. Reheat in 400° oven 6 to 8 minutes or until heated through.

You can also freeze unbaked puffs. Place waxed paper or cooking parchment paper between layers of puffs. Cover tightly and freeze up to 1 week. Bake as directed.
