Cream Puffs


by Kara Kimbrough


1/2 cup butter

1 cup boiling water

1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 eggs

1 box vanilla pudding


Melt butter in 1 cup boiling water. Add flour and salt all at once. Stir vigorously. Cook and stir until mixture forms a ball that doesn’t separate. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, heating after each until smooth.


Drop by heaping tablespoons 3 inches apart on non-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes, then at 325 degrees F for 25 minutes. Remove from oven; split. Turn oven off; put cream puffs back in to dry, about 20 minutes. Cool on rack. Makes 10 or if you prefer more, make them smaller. Fill with vanilla pudding (I use the prepared box mix.)
