CREAM PUFFS WITH VANILLA BEAN PASTRY CREAM

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 20-25
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • Vanilla Bean Pastry Cream (see recipe)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Prepare cream puff shells: In a large pot, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms a ball. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon or stand mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Centers should be dry.
  • When the shells are cool, either split and fill them with the pastry cream mixture, or use a pastry bag to pipe the cream into the shells.

Notes

"These were a lot easier to make than I expected. The pastry cream is to die for and would be great in a trifle as well."
