These delightful morsels combine water, margarine, lemon peel, salt, flour and eggs. They may only have six ingredients, but the flavors blend perfectly into a mouth-watering puffy pastry that can be topped with melted chocolate. Making them will be the best 50 minutes of your week.

This will be a 5 star recipe I use regularly. Each puff is perfectly sized to fit right in your mouth with a light outer shell and a rush of sweet cream filling on the inside.
