Can I Air Dry Cream Puff Shells?

Our experience is that cream puffs shells actually do better the longer you allow them to dry. Best recommendation is to let them air dry at room temperature and then store them tightly covered in a dry container. The less moisture they are exposed to, the less likely they are to get soggy. You can also crisp them up/dry them a bit by placing them in a hot oven for a few minutes. Do not store in the refrigerator until you have filled them. Enjoy!

Can I Air Dry Cream Puff Shells?

Question:

I have just finished baking cream puff shells. At the moment they are cooling on wire racks. I would like to wait until tomorrow afternoon to fill the shells and serve. Can I just leave them to air dry or put them in a covered container until tomorrow? Thanks for your help,
