Cream Puffs

These Cream Puffs are great for filling with your favorite
chicken salad, ham salad, or if you prefer pudding of your choice. They
are a real crowd pleaser and I like them best because,
they form a small whole for the filling and they make wonderful finger sandwiches!

Five Ingredients:
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C flour
  • 4 C boiling water
  • 4 unbeaten eggs
  • filling of your choice

In a medium size pot, bring water and butter to a rapid boil, add flour all at once, mix thoroughly, remove from heat; add one egg at a time, stir well between each addition, drop by spoonfuls no bigger thn a golf ball size, (important to keep small) on greased cookie sheet. dampen you finger tip to smooth peaks. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.

My wonderful Mom and I had so much fun making these cream puffs together in her cute apple kitchen. I thought I would share some pics. Even though she did close her I eyes I love that she let me take her picture. :)

So it's Just the two of us hoping you fill your Cream Puffs with whatever delights your fancy!

We were just talking about cream puffs the other day. My mother's cousin makes dozens of cream puffs every year to celebrate her husband's release from a Prisoner Of War camp after WWII. He was part of that horrific Batan March and imprisoned by the Japanese for years. When he was asked what he wanted when he got home he said "Cream Puffs" - and so the tradition began.

My mom has an apple kitchen too, she'd LOVE your mom's kitchen! It's so cute! I'm planning on having an apple kitchen as well..when I finally get my own kitchen!

I love cream puffs, thanks for the easy recipe! =)

Just passing through to add you to the CWO blog ring. Welcome aboard.

Those cream puffs look good.

I think you have my husband figured out! Just right.

My sister has an apple kitchen, too. She's a teacher and her apple collection just grows and grows every year.

My mother-in-law makes great cream puffs. I need to try them.

Hey, you should link yesterday's embarrassing moment on my daughter's blog - she's trying to get links to embarrassing moment confessions. Go to http://kristenssocalledlife.blogspot.com/2006/09/whats-your-most-embarassing-moment.html and link up. It'll be fun!

I just had to stop back and ask... in that first picture of the kitchen, do you happen to know where your mom got those placemats or what looks to be a framed apple print..maybe cross-stitched? And in the 2nd pic.. those ultra cute apple ceramic flour + sugar containers? My mom would absolutely LOVE them and I'm trying to come up with ideas for Christmas =)

Larae, I bought her the place mats at Country Kitchen restaurant. The canisters came from Kirklands, but they don't carry them anymore.

Here is an incredible website that has a lot of apple decor such as an apple plate rack, a country braided rug, apple basket clock (all under $14.99): www.collectionsetc.com I have used the site and they are great, they even have apple chair covers. Most items are listed under country themes.

Hope this helps! Talk to you later!
