Serves 10 puffs | Prep Time 25 minutes | Cook Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter,cubed
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs

Lemon filling:

1 egg beaten
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice ( I use fresh lemon juice)
2 tablespoons butter,cubed
1 cup heavy whipping cream,whipped
2 teaspoons sugar
Confectioners' sugar


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


Drop by rounded tablespoons 3 in. apart onto greased baking sheets.Bake at 400 F. for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.Remove to a wire rack.Immediately split puffs and remove tops;discard soft dough from inside.Set puffs and tops aside to cool.


For filling,in a small heavy saucepan,combine the egg,sugar,lemon juice and butter.Bring to a boil over medium heat;cook and stir for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon.


Remove from the heat.Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water;stir for 2 minutes.Transfer to a bowl;press plastic wrap onto surface of filling.Chill for 1 hour or until partially set.


In a mixing bowl,beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form;fold into lemon mixture.Fill puffs with the cream mixture and replace tops.Dust with confectioners' sugar.
