You see a cream puff and automatically you think this has got to be hard to make. Wrong! They are not hard to make and take only four ingredients.
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1cup all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 400ºF. In 2 1/2-quart saucepan, heat water and butter to rolling boil. Stir in flour; reduce heat to low. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time; continue beating until smooth.
On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls about 3 inches apart. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool away from draft, about 30 minutes. You can poke a hole in the side and fill with your desired filling. Or cut in half and put in a scoop of ice cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce or caramel sauce. You can also pipe the dough onto the baking sheet, if you want to. Surprise your guests next time. You can also make them savory by making them smaller and filling them with chicken salad.
Till next time.........
