This is so simple, but looks so pro. I looked at other recipes for puffs, but they seemed very involved. Suzi was the mother of 4 children under 4 (years of age) when I met her, and she always managed to have something special to share from her kitchen. I use these for appetizers and fill with chicken salad or egg salad.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat butter and water to a boil.
  2. Add flour salt and sugar stir and cook till mixture pulls from pan.
  3. Cool one minute.
  4. Spray cookie sheets with non stick spray (like Pam). I also cover the sheets with foil first. This is so the puffs won't stick and get holes in the bottoms.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each until smooth.
  6. Drop by teaspoon to cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes.
  8. Open (horizontally) and bake for another 10 minutes, or until dry.

What fun little popovers. Very quick to make -- something I really appreciate! A few months ago in a mindless frenzy, I gave away my popover pan, and I've regretted it ever since. It never dawned on me to make mini-popovers on a cookie sheet. I made these (unfilled) and served them in place of a dinner roll. We have quite a few left over, and I plan to make mini cream puffs tonight. Thanks for the recipe!
