Easy Allergy Friendly Cream Puffs

These allergy friendly, gluten free and dairy free cream puffs are amazingly easy to make. Usually when I make these kind of baking goods they are a complete disaster, however, this one was very easy to make and turned out quite good for an allergy friendly version, if I say so myself. My kids helped me make these. They poured in the ingredients as I stirred and then made balls. Once the puffs cooled, they filled it with the icing too. I used Cake Mate Cupcake Icing, that comes in a spray can ready to be used, along with icing tips. This icing does not have any of the ingredients that my kids are allergic to. If you find that you can not use it, you can use whipped cream or icing of your own choice or use the puffs in a savory recipe.
