My e-cookbook, Simply Sweet Dream Puffs, is available to download!
The recipes are all easy-to-make and scrumptious! You’ll be amazed at all the ways you can change up cream puffs, eclairs and profiteroles (ice cream filled cream puffs.)
You can download the e-book from Amazon. Amazon has a Kindle app that you can use to read e-books on almost any device, including phones, laptops and desktop computers.
It’s also available on Barnes and Noble if you’re a Nook user, and other online book outlets.
If you haven’t made cream puffs before, I’ve created a How to Make Cream Puffs Video to show you how easy they are to make.
I’ve also created templates to help you pipe them just the right size. And an eclair video to show you how to pipe, filled and decorate eclairs. Have fun!
Oxmoor House, a division of Time Magazine, is my publisher. Dream Puffs is part of their Simply Sweet series of cookbooks. They had a talented team that created a beautiful cookbook. This cookbook has been a labor of love, and I’m so happy to share it with you.
A big thank you to my wonderful editor, Allison Cox Vasquez, creative graphic designer, Maribeth Jones, fabulous photographer, Helene Dujardin, and her whole team that made the desserts and styled the food and photographs for the gorgeous pictures in the cookbook.
Thank you to everyone for your encouragement and support, and to my test tasters for their honest feedback and help in perfecting the recipes.
The cookbook is only available as an e-book.
This book looks amazing! My little baker is 11 years old and she loves to bake. She opens her bakery at the foot of our driveway every summer and is always looking for something new to challange her baking skills. Pate a choux is something she’s been interested in trying, this book looks right up her alley. She is desperate to have this in book form. Please sign her up for a paperback or hard cover version.
Hi Lisa – how cute. I’m sorry it doesn’t look like it will be available in paperback or hard cover. You can download the Kindle app for almost any device and purchase the ebook. I’m sure she’ll be surprised just how easy pate a choux is to make. Facebook or Instagram a picture of her with her stand and goodies. I’d love to see it.
Please add me to the list of a “real” book! I’ve tried the ebook, but much prefer a hard copy. They are much more comfortable to curl up with with a cup of tea. I do hope your publisher will listen to the demand for a hard copy of your book, Simply Dream Puffs
Hi Barbara and congratulations on your first book, which by the way I just purchased. I have never made a cream puff but they are one of most favorite desserts! Now I will try and make them as beautiful as yours.
I also want to say that I follow a lot of food blogs and I am most impressed with yours. I can back again and again to see what you have made. Your breads are so incredible, in fact all of your posts are so professional looking. I can tell you have put a lot of thought into your blog design and in what you make. Thanks!
Congrats again. I will let you know how my first batch of cream puffs turn out!
Thanks Lori!! That’s so nice of you to take the time to let me know. I hope you love the cookbook. Be sure and watch the video https://www.barbarabakes.com/how-to-make-cream-puffs-video-and-easy-step-by-step-photos-and-instructions/ and use the templates https://www.barbarabakes.com/pate-a-choux-templates-for-cream-puffs-and-eclairs/ and you’ll be surprised just how easy they are.
Have fun baking!
I’ve just seen one of your recipes from the book on another site and can’t wait to download it on to my Kindle. I’ve never made choux pastry before, but will certainly be giving it a go now – thanks for the beautiful inspiration!
Thanks so much Amanda! I’m sure you’ll be surprised how easy it is to make. Have fun!
YUM! This looks so beautiful. Congrats Barbara!
Thanks so much Karen! It really is such a pretty cookbook. The designer and photographer did a great job.

Congratulations! You work so hard, this is well deserved.
Thanks Annamaria – that’s so nice!
Congratulations!!! How exciting!
Thanks Erin! It really has been exciting.
Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella
A huge congratulations mum!! I’m so happy for you and I can’t wait to make something from it! The book is so gorgeous and it’s clear how much love and work you’ve put into it! xxx
Big hugs! Thanks so much for sharing it with your readers. I’m glad you loved it.
Congratulations, what a beautiful book!
Renee J. (RJFlamingo)
Thrilled for you, Barbara! Looks gorgeous and well, nothing’s better than a puff! xox
I couldn’t agree more. Thanks so much Renee!
Congratulations! This is terrific news. I wish you all the best with your book! What could be better than cream puffs!
Not much better than a cream puff 🙂 Thanks Adri!!
Sending you a big hug and many many congratulations on your wonderful book! I can’t imagine the hours and hours it took to create all of these wonderful recipes.
I just know this book is going to sell like crazy….
Thanks so much Carol! I worked on it for over 2 years and had so much fun creating all the luscious recipes.
Congratulations. I too wish this was a paperback or hardcover book. I do not own a kindle, nor do I like the idea of downloading it to my computer. My computer is in another part of the house not near the kitchen, whereas having a book to read and reference is ideal for me. I do not like to just print a recipe because it often gets lost and forgotten. This book looks wonderful and I thought it was going to be in paperback. Maybe your publisher can re-do in another format if there are enough inquiries.
Thanks Karen – it really is a wonderful book! I understand it’s hard to get use to a new way of doing things. Actually, one of the benefits of an e-book is it doesn’t get lost. If you get a new computer or tablet that you want to read the book on, you can download it again to the new device and the book never gets misplaced.
You e-book looks wonderful! I am very happy for you and congratulations! I am going over to check it out.
Thanks Ginny! I’m super proud of it. The recipes really are easy and fun.
I really wish this was a paper book. I do not own a Kindle, etc and don’t want to read a book on my phone. Please ask they publish this.
Thanks Theresa! What’s great is you can download the Kindle app on your desktop or laptop computer so there’s no need to buy a Kindle or read it on your phone. One nice thing about the digital book is the links to other sections of the book. For example when a recipe references a recipe used earlier in the book, you can just click the link and it will take you to that recipe.
