Cream Puff Recipe

My first attempt to bake one of my comfort food – Cream Puff. I download the recipe at www.food.com. It was yummy, though i admit there are still things that i need to improve on my next try. Lessons learned, i should really wait until the puff is golden brown!

Ingredients:

For pudding filling:

 
Directions:
PUDDING
  1. First, prepare pudding.
  2. In a large saucepan, stir flour, sugar, and milk together.
  3. Stir continuously, cooking over medium heat, until bubbly.
  4. Cook, while stirring, for two minutes more.
  5. Remove from heat and stir about a cup of the milk mixture into the eggs gradually.
  6. Add this egg mixture back into the saucepan with the rest of the milk mixture and cook until NEARLY bubbly, avoiding a boil.
  7. Cook on low heat for two minutes more, stirring.
  8. 8.Stir in the vanilla, cover the surface of the pudding with plastic wrap, and chill until serving time.
PUFF
In saucepan, bring water, butter and salt to a boil.Add flour all at once and stir until it forms a ball.Remove from from heat, let stand 5 minutes.Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.Drop by 1/4 cups at least 3 inches apart onto a greased baking sheet.Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes (or until golden brown). For assembly, use a serrated knife to cut almost entirely around each puff three-quarters of the way up, to make a lid.Scoop out any excess dough that may be left inside, and spoon some filling into each puff, replacing the lids after finishing.Dust in a light coating of powdered sugar for presentation.
