I love cream puffs and I will be trying this recipe over the holidays. You can always make your own recipe for the puffs and just follow the cream recipe. I think I may substitute spiced rum for the rum extract. This comes from Betty Crocker.
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs
- powdered sugar
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon rum extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 cups whipping cream
