Frozen cream puff has been widely commercialised especially in the USA, European countries and Japan. It is one of the popular ready-to-eat food products in these countries. However, frozen cream puff is almost non-existing in Malaysian market. Cream puff (Figure 1) is usually baked and consumed on the same day. On the shelf, it is stored in the chiller or refrigerator for up to 24 hr. Shelf-life of the cream puff shells can be extended by freezing. Baked cream puff shells can be frozen for 6 to 12 months in a plastic freezer bag.
