Puffs With Cream Made With LOVE...

Living From Glory To Glory Blog
Fresh Cream Puffs Right Out Of The Oven...

Living From Glory To Glory Blog
One of my most favorite desserts I remember as a child was my Mothers
Cream Puffs!

They are light and fluffy, yet filled with a cool rich custard or pudding.
You can make this real fancy or easy.
The shell is the secret and they can be made ahead as they last
Quite well, for a couple of days.

I usually make my own homemade pudding for these;
But as I said you can use a pudding mix.
Vanilla or Chocolate

But I must mention that these will taste like a dessert from a french restaurant
If you will take the time and whip up some fresh whip cream.
(Trust Me)

I went ahead and found a good link for you to be able to read and follow;
Because for the first time of making these I did not want to try to remember
All of the steps, and possibly leave one out!
As you all know we bake and cook most things without a recipe.
Don't you love the recipes that say a dash of this and a splash of that.
Or a dollop of this and best of all, do I whip it, beat it or crush it....
So Ladies click the link below and let this wonderful link
Fill in all the gaps and create the most amazing and delicious dessert ever!

Make a little LOVE!!

My Recipe For Cream Puffs

Bake at 400
For 30 minutes or until Puffed-Up and brown on top!
(Not soggy)
Makes about 10 to 12 Puffs

1 cup water-measure this accurately
1 stick butter
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup flour
4 large eggs

1. In saucepan, add water and butter and salt;
Bring to boiling, Quickly now add the flour
 All at once stir vigorously.
Reduce heat to low...
Cook and stir until mixture forms a ball of dough -about 1 minute.
Remove from heat, cool for 5-10 minutes.
Now add eggs-
You can either beat all eggs together in a bowl and add mixture all at once or
(I do it this way)
Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating each one well with a wooden spoon
This dough will be smooth, creamy and thick

Drop about 1/3 of a cup of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in a hot oven that has been preheated, they take about 30 to32 minutes.
Once done baking, remove to a wire rack to cool.

Once you are ready to serve them you slice them in half or just the tops off;
Now, you can fill them with pudding or whipped cream.
Now add the top back on and garnish with powder sugar!
Only fill them before serving them as to not allow them to get soggy!

Also, you can make little ones for a party, just bake for a shorter time.

How To Make:
Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Ingredients needed:
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1-2 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of butter

In a medium saucepan that is slightly heavier;
Add 2 cups milk
Heat this milk until bubbles form at the edges;

Now add this mixture that you have mixed together in another bowl beforehand!
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt

Pour this dry mixture into hot milk a little at a time
Stirring till all is dissolved.
Continue to cook and stir till mixture thickens enough to coat a the back of a metal spoon.
Do not boil...
Now Remove from heat and now add vanilla and butter
1-2 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoon of butter.
Stir till blended...

Place in a pretty bowl or custard cups,
Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and chill for Cream Puffs,
Or to eat as a dessert by itself.

  6. Dear Roxy, I am on my way:)) happy to bring strawberries to have with the cream puffs!! My best friends mother use to make cream puffs in an old wood stove and she would test the heat by putting her hand in the oven . If it felt "right " she would put in the puffs. I'm sure her recipe involved a dash of something !! They were always perfect .

  7. Oh my! I haven't made these for years. I remember they were so good!
