Description

Cream Puffs... if you eat one, you'll eat them all!

Ingredients
  • FOR THE PUFFS (* see below)
  • 1/2 Cup Spry (Crisco all vegetable shortening)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of flour ( I use Gold Medal Wonder Quick Mixing Flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • FOR THE CREAM (**see below)
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 9 tablespoons of flour (I use same as above...Gold Medal Wonder Quick Mixing Flour)
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla
  • confectioners sugar
  • ** see below
  • Put the above ingredients for the cream in a double boiler pot...put on stove....keep stirring until custard thickens...Then take off stove and add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla

 

Directions/Steps
  1. *PUFFS....
  2. Bring water, spry & salt to a boil. Then with a spoon mix the flour in until it becomes a ball. Take it off the stove and put this mixture in a bowl.
  3. Add 1 egg and mix (use a mixer)
  4. add 1 more egg and mix again
  5. add 1 more egg and mix again
  6. add 1 last egg and mix again.
  7. Spoon a teaspoon of this mixture onto a cooking sheet and repeat... please leave a little space between each puff for them to grow.
  8. After the 20 mins you can check and see if the puffs have raised... you might need to cook an additional 5 or 10 minutes. (depends on your stove) After they cool for a few minutes slice the puff in half and then fill with the cream.
  9. **FOR THE CREAM
  10. 2 cups of milk
  11. 2 egg yolks
  12. 3/4 cup of sugar
  13. 9 tablespoons of flour (I use same as above... Gold Medal Wonder Quick Mixing Flour)
  14. Put the above ingredients for the cream in a double boiler pot...put on stove... keep stirring in one direction until custard thickens (don't stop)...Then take off stove and add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla and stir.
  15. Now fill the puffs. After the puffs have been filled, let them cool in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or more... before serving them sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
  16. Enjoy... Mimi

I bet you can not just have one. Before you know it they will be gone.

I have the same recipe, but add zest of 1 lemon to the cream. These also freeze very well if you can keep them around long enough to do so. You really can't eat just one!
