Cream Puffs

Here is another "old" recipe...i remember when you had to make everything from mixes...and this was a favorite of mine as a mother would make these and fill with homemade pudding or icecream topped with hot wonder i have a weight
I too would make these for the kids...eclairs (remember those)..or make them small and when cool use savory fillings for appetizers...i remember chicken curry with almonds(where is that recipe..mmmm) here ya go:

Cream Puffs
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup of flour
4 eggs
Heat oven to 400 degrees....Heat water and butter to rolling boil. Stir in flour over low heat one minute or until mixture forms a ball. Remove...than beat...beat in eggs all at one time; continue beating until smooth..(by hand) Drop dough by scant 1/4 cup about 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet
Bake 35-40 minutes until puffed and golden
cool....than fill.......

wow....this brings me back......

Oh my Mom used to make the best cream puffs too. I am going to have to try this sometime when I feel like gaining a few pounds and having some comfort food.
