Spiced Peach Puffs
Last night I made spiced peach puffs for dessert. They aren’t really the kind of dessert we would normally choose, but they were really good! You can find the recipe HERE. I’ve actually wanted to try them for quite awhile but the filling calls for heavy whipping cream and I’m lactose intolerant. I’m also allergic to soy so I wasn’t sure I’d find whipped cream that we could use… until the glorious day we stumbled upon Safeway brand whipped topping. Free of soy and not a significant source of lactose. Hurray!
Substitutions and recommendations:
- This recipe makes more puffs than we could ever eat so I made half a batch and made the puffs twice as big. I’ll probably make them the correct size next time as they rose up and then sunk back down just a little.
- Do make sure you scoop out the inside while they are still warm. As they cool the inside becomes a little mushy making it harder to get out.
- I of course substituted the heavy cream for the whipped topping.
- The recipe doesn’t call for this but I sprinkled cinnamon over the top. Yum!
Note: If we were unable to find whipped cream, we were planning to use Breyer’s Lactose Free Vanilla ice cream. I’m pretty sure this is the best vanilla ice cream ever made. If you know me you know I’m not a big fan of vanilla, especially in ice cream, but I could eat this all day. James even prefers it to regular ice cream!
