Newfoundland Cream Puffs are a traditional Newfoundland dessert that features a variation of the classic cream puff. In this version, the pastry is filled with a sweetened whipped cream and usually topped with a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Once the pastry shells have cooled, the Cream Puffs are filled with sweetened whipped cream. Some variations might include adding a flavoured filling or incorporating local ingredients for a unique twist.
