Cream Puffs!

  • Author: ApronWarrior


1 quart of water

2.5 sticks of butter

2 TBSP sugar

1/2 oz of salt

3 1/4 cups of unbleached flour

810 eggs *this varies depending on the state of the dough


Add water, butter, sugar, and salt into a pot and bring to a gentle roiling boil

Add flour

Stir constantly over hear, until there is a collection of starch at the bottom of pot (2-3 mins)

When this has been achieved, put into a mixer(like kitchen aid) on low until steam dissipates and the bottom of the bowl is no longer hot, but warm.

Add eggs once at a time (to see if you need more egg, take a clump of dough between your thumb and forefinger and pull apart. If your dough does not connect in a stringy mass when pulled apart, you need more egg)

Once done, pipe into little circles

Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. You need to make sure they’re golden brown on the top, this may take longer than 20 minutes

Cut pieces in half and fill with strawberries and whip cream, top with powdered sugar!
