Cherry Berry Dessert Recipe

I have a new favorite dessert! Cherry Berry Dessert. The base is a cream puff crust, then comes a creamy, pillowy filling and it's topped off with a yummy fruit topping. It's indescribably delicious! I could not get enough of it.

I originally found this recipe over at Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen. She used a meringue crust. I wasn't sure if I would like a meringue crust. Sure, I like lemon meringue pie, but sometimes I scrape off the meringue and just eat the lemon part. Plus it seemed like a lot of work.

So I decided to use a cream puff base like I did with my Eclaire Pie. The result was amazing! It gave it the perfect amount of bite to contrast with the creamy filling.
