Cream Puffs

These homemade cream puffs are made with a light choux pastry that puffs up when baked. In this version, they are filled with a rich vanilla cream that's easy to make with instant pudding. Drizzle melted chocolate on top for a fancy dessert that will wow your guests!

How to Make It

  1. Mix together vanilla instan
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  3. In a large pot, bring water and butter to a rolling boil.

  4. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms a ball.

  5. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon or stand mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each.

  6. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, spacing them a couple of inches apart.

  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Centers should be dry.
