Puff Ingredients:

Cream Filling Ingredients:


PUFFS:  Add butter to boiling water until it melts.  Add flour and salt all at once.  Cook, stirring vigorously until mixture is smooth and forms a ball.  Cool slightly.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously after each egg is added.  Beat until mixture is smooth.  Drop batter onto greased cookie sheet to form the size of creamy puff you want.  Bake at 450° for 15 minutes.  Then lower temperature to 325° and bake for another 25 minutes.  Cool.

CREAM FILLING:  Mix flour, sugar and salt.  Slowly stir in milk.  Cook, stirring until mixture boils; boil for 2 minutes.  Stir a little of hot mixture into eggs, then return to hot mixture, stir until thick, add vanilla, fill puffs.

Optional:  You can drizzle caramelized sugar on top of the puffs if you want it crunchy.

    I love cream puffs. They are really versatile. They are great filled with chicken salad and look really special when you have a party.
    Do you ever pipe out this dough to make eclairs? They turn out great for those as well.

  6. Mmm… I remember making these with my mom when I was in my teens. They were the first “pastries” I learned to make, and I’d forgotten how easy they actually are to do. I’m thinking they’ll make a great dessert tonight!
