1/3 Photos of Cream Puffs
Aunt Lucy always had some "specialities" for you to taste, even when you just popped in on her for a visit. I wondered how it was never a fuss or bother to her? I popped in often; oooooo'd and ahhhhhhh'd and she'd give me her recipe. I tried it and you know! it isn't that bothersome and so, when you want something special...here it is, cream puffs a la "Aunt Lucy"!
My Private Note
- 1In a medium size sauce pan, bring water to boil.
- 2Add melted butter and reheat to boiling point.
- 3Add flour, stirring rapidly.
- 4By the time the flour has absorbed the liquid, the batter should leave the sides of the pan when stirred.
- 5Remove from the heat immediately.
- 6Briskly beat one egg at a time until all four eggs have been incorporated into the batter completely.
- 7Spoon 1/2 teaspoon full of the batter onto a well-greased cookie sheet; allowing 1-inch clearance all around each spoonful.
- 8If you are making large puffs 1 tablespoon of batter, allow 2 to 3-inches between each spoonful.
- 9Preheat oven to 400 degrees; and bake for 5-7 minutes.
- 10Reduce the heat to 200 degrees; and bake for 30 minutes.
- 11They should be a nice golden brown in color.
- 12Makes 72 small or 16 large cream puffs.
- 14Split horizontally and fill with your favorite filling.
- 15For a dessert, fill with pudding or cream or custard,dust with Confectionery sugar or drizzle chocolate syrup on top.
