“My mother was renowned for her powder puffs. They cook up and cool to very dry, and will keep for a week or 10 days (I challenge you to keep them that long ;-) ) in an air-tight tin, then you bring them out, fill them, and they are as light and tender as you can imagine! Not really sure how many this recipe will make.”
