If you want good pastry made right, here is a great convection oven recipe. If you want, the cream puffs can be prepared up to 12 hours before the filling. You can just freeze them to store longer, just make sure that they are wrapped airtight. To cook the puffs in this recipe, just place them thawed on a baking sheet. Make sure they're placed slightly apart and bake for 5-8 minutes on a 400 degree oven.

Ingredients for this convection oven recipe are:
Cream Puff Dough
Filling (you can choose any of these fillings):
Whipped cream, lightly sweetened and flavoured
Chocolate flavoured ice cream to be put as a topping (optional)
Confectioner's sugar (optional)
Preparation of this convection oven recipe:
1. Use a spoon to separate the cream puff dough into 10 mounds. The portions have to be equal at about 1/4 cup. Place these on a baking sheet and make sure they're at least two inches apart.
2. You then have to bake the puffs in a convection oven set at about 375 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until they are golden brown. If you are cooking multiple sheets at the same time in a single oven, you should make sure to change their positions halfway through baking. Use a wooden skewer to poke holes into each puff and then continue baking them until they're golden brown. After that, cool the puffs in a rack.
3. Slice off the top of each puff and add about 1/2 cup of your preferred filling. Replace the tops you cut off and then you can put in the toppings you want. This convection oven recipe is very easy to make and you could try experimenting with different fillings.
