DebbieK's Cream PuffsPastry...
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
To make the pastry, heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat water
and butter in a sauce pan and bring mixture to a rolling
boil. Stir in flour over low heat and continue stirring
until mix forms a ball. Remove from heat. Hand mix in
eggs all at one time into sauce pan and continue to mix
until smooth. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of mixture three inches
apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 35 to 40 minutes.
Cool pastry away from any drafts. Cut off tops of pastry
and fill when cool.
To make the filling, blend pudding mix and milk at low speed. Add chilled cream and beat until stiff peaks form. Note: For a stiffer and creamier filling, DebbieK uses half and half instead of the whole milk.
