Cream Puffs

Postby ceteria » Wed Aug 22, 2007 10:00 am

Here's one of my favorite recipes to make, especially with my sister. These cream puffs are delicate, but taste great. Good for any kind of party and for dessert.


1 cup of warm water
1/2 cup of butter
1/3 tsp salt
1 cup of all purpose flour
4 eggs

1 cup of thick whip cream
2 tsp of gelatin
(optional) sifted powdered sugar


1) using a medium saucepan, combine water, butter and salt and bring to a boil. The second it starts to boil, add the flour all at once. Cook and stif the mixture until you can roll it into a ball. Put the ball into a cool bowl for ten minutes.

2) While you are wating for ten minutes, beat all four eggs. When the ten minutes are up, pour a quarter of the egg mixture into the dough. Stir vigorously until it's thick again. Repeat until all the egg mixture is used.

3) Drop the dough into 12 mounds on a greased baing tray. Bake in an oven at 400F for forty minutes or until you can see that they're golden. Remove from the baking tray and cool for five minutes on a wire rack. When cooled, cut the top of the puffs and remove the dough inside. Fill up the insides with the whip cream formula provied. Put the top of the puffs back on and sprinkle with the sifted powdered sugar if you wish.

Whip Cream Formula
