Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter

1 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 eggs


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.
