These cream puffs are the dessert people BEG me to bring to parties. What they don’t know is how truly easy they are to make!
- 1/2 cup one stick butter
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup flour

- 3.4 oz each 1 1/3 cup cold whole milk powdered sugar
- !Cream Puffs: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Melt stick of butter and water to a rolling boil Stir in flour and stir vigorously over low heat until mixture leaves the pan (comes off the sides) and is in a ball (about 1 minute) Remove from heat and cool for a couple of minutes Beat in eggs (one at a time) with a mixer Beat mixture until smooth and velvety Drop by spoonfuls (walnut sized) onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper Bake until DRY, 20-25 minutes (maybe longer) Allow cream puffs to cool completely !Filling: Mix instant vanilla pudding with whole milk until the pudding is dissolved Put mixture in the refrigerator (at least an hour) !Assembly: Slice the cream puffs in half and fill with the chilled pudding Sprinkle with powdered sugar
