"POW" Puffs with Cream
I have tried every Puff recipe I think there is, this is a doctored recipe I have using other recipes and finally putting them together to make what I call the easy perfect puff recipe!

Preheat Oven to 425 degrees

Cream Filling

  • 1 Package of instant pudding (chocolate, vanilla, custard, cheesecake are great)

  • 2 C. Heavy Cream

  • ½ C. Sugar

  • 1 8oz Cream Cheese

  • 5 Tsp. Flour


Directions:
1. In a bowl add heavy cream and sugar; beat on high speed until it thickens. Now add cream cheese, flour and pudding (of your choice). Whip with your beater all together, cover and put in refrigerator.
Note: You can also easily add other flavorings.


Pastry
  • ½ C. Butter (or 1 stick of butter)

  • 1C. Water

  • 1 Tsp. Baking powder

  • ¼ Tsp. Salt

  • 1 C. Flour

  • 4 Eggs


Directions:
1. On the stove using a small pot add your water, butter and salt. Bring to a boil remove and add this to your large bowl with your flour and baking powder mix well until it forms in a dough like state.
THE KEY for a fluffy Puff: Let this dough COOL before adding Eggs.
Once dough is cooled beat with your mixer ONE Egg at a time make sure it is mixed well before adding another. This is so important do not try to hurry this process!
2. Now get your cookie sheet out and line with parchment paper (I?m a huge fan of parchment paper). Drop large tablespoons (be generous) of dough onto your cookies sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake in your 425 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until lightly browned on tops.
3. Make sure again to let your puffs COOL completely before adding filling.
A. You can easily cut these puffs in ½ and stuff and/or my favorite way is to cut a small hole in the bottom of the puff and add filling.
B. Easy way to add filling is using a heavy duty zip lock bad if you do not have a frosting bag. Add your frosting into the zip lock (little messy) then cut a (SMALL) hole in the bottom of the bag to fill puffs.
C. Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar and oh boy enjoy~
