Serves 12 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 30-35 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter

1 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 eggs

Filling:

2 pints fresh strawberries, sliced

1/2 cup sugar, divided

2 cups whipping cream

Confectioners’ sugar

Additional sliced strawberries for garnish


In a large saucepan, bring water, butter, sugar and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.



Drop by 12 rounded tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart onto a greased baking sheet.



Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack. Immediately cut a slit in each puff to allow steam to escape; cool.



Split puffs and set tops aside; remove soft dough from inside with a fork. Cool puffs.



For filling, combine berries and 1/4 cup sugar, chill for 30 minutes.



Beat cream and remaining sugar until stiff. Fold in berries.



Fill cream puffs and replace tops.

My dad makes these every summer. They are simply wonderful, with strawberries fresh from his garden.
