Cream Puffs! 15!

I love cream puffs. They are probably one of my favorite desserts ever. I've wanted to make them for a while and they are easy to make. If you don't have time to make the dough please make this filling! I honestly think I could have this every day for dessert and never get tired of it. I love cream puffs, especially when they're this east to make! My dad's mom used to make these and I got the recipe from my aunt. My dad kept bugging me to put chocolate on top but I didn't have time. They tasted AMAZING anyway. I'm sorry about the posting on Moday's and Tuesday's I just haven't had time over the weekends lately! Well here's the recipe!


  • 2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • A little less than 2 cups heavy cream
  • A little less than 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix together vanilla instant pudding mix, cream and milk. Cover and refrigerate to set. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large pot, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture turns into pea sized shapes. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each, add vanilla. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Centers should be dry. When the shells are cool, either split and fill them with the pudding mixture, or use a pastry bag to pipe the pudding into the shells ( I used a zip-lock bag and cut the tops off. The key is to make sure that there is a  lot of cream in them!)
