I tweaked my Mom’s Famous Cream Puffs recipe to make it even better. I would never have imagined it was possible, but once again, I was mistaken! Cream puffs are a puffy and creamy dessert that is almost too sweet. This dough is identical to the one used in our Eclair recipe. When you need a quick and relatively simple recipe that will feed a crowd, this is the recipe to use. I was able to make 16 cream puffs with this recipe.
- 1 stick butter (8 Tablespoons)
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 1c flour
- MOM’S FAMOUS FILLING:
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1 package (3.4 OUNCES) instant vanilla pudding
- ⅓ cup milk
How To Make MOM’S FAMOUS CREAM PUFFS:
Bring the butter, water and vanilla to a boil.
Add the flour and stir constantly until it leaves the side of the pot and forms a ball.
Remove and cool.
Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time until smooth.
Drop by T. onto parchment lined cookie sheets
Bake at 400 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.
Slice in half and pipe or scoop in Mom’s filling.
Dust with powdered sugar.
Beat the cream, pudding powder and milk in a mixer until thick like whipped cream!
