1. Put all vendor charges, or as much as they allow, onto your credit cards. Should a vendor go out of business, immediately contact the credit card company and tell them of your situation. They may be able to help reduce or eliminate the debt. Consider also contacting the credit companies prior to putting the charges on, as well. Many credit card companies nowadays have strict protection policies that will red-flag or disallow large charges to be put onto the card without proper communication first from the card owner.

Makes 10 servings
1. Spoon Cream Puff Dough into 10 equal mounds (about 1/4 cup each) about 2 inches apart on two lightly buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
2. Bake in a 375° regular or convection oven until puffs are golden, 25 to 35 minutes; if baking the sheets at the same time in one oven, switch their positions halfway through. With a wooden skewer, poke each puff in several places, then continue baking until golden brown, dry, and crisp, 5 to 8 minutes longer. Transfer puffs to racks to cool completely.

3. Slice the top third off each puff. Fill each bottom with 1/2 cup of one of the following: ice cream, Chocolate-Orange Cream, or lightly sweetened whipped cream flavored with vanilla or a liqueur. Cover with tops, and drizzle each puff with 2 to 3 teaspoons chocolate ice cream topping or sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar.
