Banana Split Cream Puffs Recipe

Banana Split Cream Puffs Recipe

"These fruity cream puff 'sandwiches' are a treat that our family has always found scrumptious," notes field editor Sandra McKenzie of Braham, Minnesota. "For a nice variation, use whipped cream instead of the ice cream."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 12 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 large or 2 medium bananas, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge sauce

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring water and butter to a boil. Add flour and salt all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • 2. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack. Immediately split puffs open; remove tops and set aside. Discard soft dough from inside.
  • 3. Fill each puff with a scoop of ice cream and top with fruit. Drizzle with hot fudge sauce. Replace tops and serve immediately. Yield: 1 dozen.
