To Make Ahead

Prepare as directed, except cool completely. Transfer to an airtight container; cover. Freeze for up to 1 month. To serve, preheat oven to 375°F. Bake frozen puffs about 5 minutes or until warm.


To toast pine nuts, in a medium skillet cook nuts over medium heat about 3 minutes or until toasted, shaking pan frequently. Turn out onto paper towels; cool.


We used a 1/2-inch open star tip for piping.

If you don't have a pastry bag use a ziplock bag and cut off a small piece in the corner.
