MOM'S FAMOUS CREAM PUFFS!
Every year I host a Mother's Day Tea in my first grade classroom. Of course, my mom always joins us and it has become tradition for her to make these amazing cream puffs. There are no other cream puffs that even come close to my mom's! Enjoy!
BEST RECIPE EVER!! FROM MY MOM XO
STEP ONE: MAKE PROFITEROLES & SLICE IN HALF-I ONLY USED THE BOTTOMS. RESERVE TOPS FOR CREAM PUFFS! MMMMM!
In a pot bring the following to a boil:
1 stick butter
1 cup water
Add: 1 tsp vanilla
Stir constantly until it leaves the side of the pot and forms a ball. Remove and cool. Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time until smooth. Drop by T. onto parchment lined cookie sheets and bake at 400 degrees for about 35-40 minutes.
FILL WITH WHIPPED CREAM OR A CUSTARD CREAM
MOM'S FAMOUS FILLING:
