So I know that it is pretty easy to find GF dessert stuff, but this is a recipe that i have become really fond of. i made them for a party that I went to and it was a hit.I quadrupled the recipe and made my own filling, the original recipe I used was a cream puff recipe which can be found here.

Before you start this know that the filling works best if left in the fridge overnight.
2 cup water
1 cup butter
1tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup rice flour
8 eggs
1 8oz tub of whipped topping(like cool whip)
1 vanilla instant pudding
1 cup powdered sugar
chocolate glaze (I used store bought)

1. mix up the pudding as per the directions on the package. Mix in the whipped topping and the powdered sugar, beat until stiff. Put in fridge overnight.
2.In sauce pan boil water, butter, vanilla, and salt.
3. add flour all at once, TIP:measure it out while you wait for the water to boil, it really does make a difference whether you add it all at once or not.

4. stir until the dough sticks together and pulls away from the sides of the saucepan
5.take off the heat and let sit five minutes
6. mix in the eggs one egg at a time.
7. place dough in a pastry bag (or you can use a heavy duty ziploc bag with the corner snipped off) and squeeze out in about 3 to 4 inch strips. make sure that you don't make them to thick or they won't cook properly.

8.Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Make sure that they are not under done, because they will deflate if you don't cook them long enough. They should be golden brown and kind of hard.
9. Once they cool pull out your filling. there is a couple of ways to fill them, the easy way is to just cut them in half and then put the filling in the middle like a sandwich. I like making my food pretty so I took a knife and cut a hole in each end, then I took a decorating bag and a long tip that you use to decorate cakes and filled them from the hole.
10. last but not least pour the glaze over. it's easiest if you line them all up first.
