Cream puffs are one of those things that you put off making because you think they are going to be a lot of work. At least, that was me. I kept perusing different recipes, which are basically all exactly the same, and realized that maybe they really are not that much work. I decided to take the the plunge and make them for a baby shower I was hosting. Yup, these are super easy. Easier than making cookies, if you ask me!
I made the puffs a week before the shower and froze them. I’m definitely keeping a batch of these in my freezer at all times now. And I can’t wait to play around with the cream inside! I’m thinking that all they needed was a little chocolate ganache for the top.
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 4 eggs
- In a medium pot bring to boil the butter and water.
- Turn off heat and add flour and vanilla.
- Stir with a wooden spoon until the dough forms a ball and leaves the sides of the pan.
- Allow dough to cool (you don't want to cook the eggs!).
- Stir in eggs, one at a time until completely incorporated.
- Drop by the Tablespoon on to cookie sheet.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes (watch them so they don't burn).
- For the cream: Use whipped cream, pudding or any combination you like!
