Cream Puffs Recipe 🍰 Easy and Delicious Dessert
You will need:
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- In a large pot, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Stir in flour and stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and beat in eggs one at a time, until mixture is smooth and glossy.
- Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Centers should be dry.
- In a separate bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla until cream holds stiff peaks. Once the puff shells are cool, cut off tops, fill with cream and replace tops.
You can dust the tops with additional powdered sugar for a sweet finish. Make sure the puff shells are completely cool before filling to prevent the cream from melting.
