What’s Cooking: Cream Puffs

This Sunday is twice as special because it’s cooking day and it’s Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms/mothers/mamas!

Here’s something easy and fun I whipped up for our afternoon snacks that you can do for your moms too — Cream Puffs!

As always, we start with mise en place.

For the puff: water, flour, butter, salt, eggs

For cream filling: sugar, milk, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla and salt

Let’s start with the puff first. Add salt to the flour. Then, combine butter and boiling water in a saucepan. Keep stirring over low heat until butter is melted. Add flour and stir until the mixture leaves no residue on the side of the pan.

Remove from heat and then add eggs one at a time, beating throughly after each addition. Continue beating until a thick dough is formed.

Next, drop by tablespoon into a greased baking sheet and bake in hot oven for about 20 minutes.

While waiting for the puffs to bake, start working on the cream filling. Double boil all the ingredients, stirring continuously until thick enough for spreading.

Now, back to the puffs. Once they’re done, let them cool. The cut a slit along the side of each puff and spoon in the cream filling. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and drizzle with chocolate syrup, and voila!

Serve with love! 🙂
