Cream Puffs My Grandma Used To Make
- Susan Peloso
- 1 cup (225 ml) water
- 1 stick butter ( or margerine)
- 1 cup (225 ml) flour
- 4 eggs
- In a saucepan boil the water and butter.
- Put temperature of stove to low and Add flour, MIX it and make a form of a ball.
- When a ball is formed turn stove off.
- Add 1 egg to the ball of dough in the saucepan mix it well so the egg is blended in and then repeat it again 3 more times.
- THE KEY IS IF YOU PUT ONE EGG AT A TIME AND MIX IT AND DO IT AGAIN IT WILL MAKE THE PUFFS RISE.
- IF YOU DO NOT MIX THE EGG AT A TIME THEN IT WILL NOT RISE.
- You want a satin look to your mixture (A shiny look).
- On a cookie sheet ungreased take a tbsp of the mixer and put it onto the cookie sheet make sure it is about a inch and half to 2 inches apart.
- Cook in the oven on 375 degrees (200 C.) and cook about 40 to 50 minutes or until lightly brown on top of the puffs.
- You can make sure it is done but taking a knife and taping the puff to hear a hollow sound.
- When done take out of oven let it cool and then put your favorite pudding in it.
- Some people like vanilla others like chocolate or pistachio pudding whichever pleases you.
- I prefer vanilla myself my sister loves chocolate.
- Sometimes I buy a candy bar and melt it down and pour it onto the puff after the pudding is in.
- My guests love it.
- My Grandma Davis use to make this for us when we
were young. She gave me the recipe but I also
added my own ingredients to it. She passed away while
back, but everytime I make them and eat them I
think of her and how we came home after school
and she had them on the table waiting for us kids
to eat, now I am 27 and I still smile. I hope
others will enjoy them as I do.
