The recipe itself is really good especially if you supstitue 3/4 cup of olive oil for every cup of butter but the second time you bake the dough 30 minutes is a bit to much, 19 or 20 minutes is much better

Great recipe! Taste just like Wisconsin State Fair cream puffs. I filled them with #72356. I used raw butter which added an insanely good butter flavor. Mine didn't get the nice peaks, but my wrists were killing me during the 15 minutes mixing stage, so I don't think I did it very well with all of the frequent breaks. I wonder if I could mix it in my stand mixer next time? Soo good, Mille, THANK YOU!
