How Do I Store Cream Puff Shells?

Cream puffs can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days; freeze for longer storage. If your cream puffs have softened in storage they can be crisped up in the oven before filling and serving. To re-crisp; bake uncovered in a 300°F for about 5 to 8 minutes. Cool completely before filling. Lemon Mint Cream Puffs. Photo: Lance Mellenbruch.

How Do I Store Cream Puff Shells?

Q: My cream puffs always turn out well and are very good if eaten the same day. However, if I want to bake them the day beforehand and store the shells  (without filling), they tend to become soft.  I have even stored them in tins….what am I doing incorrectly?
