This recipe wasn't handed down from my mother—it was passed "up" from my granddaughter! It's now a favorite dish for Mother's Day…and year-round as well. —Judy Gochenour, Logan, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring water, butter and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and 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.

Yum, Yum, Yum!!! Good for your grandaughter. This is soooo good, very elegant too, can be dressed up or down as the meal dictates. Don't discard the tops, put them back on and add a topping. Try it before you rate it. Not fair otherwise & a waste of time for those of us wanting an honest review.

I don't see how it matters that the puff recipe is the same for that of eclairs. There is no sugar in the puff pastry recipe, making this very versatile for dessert, breakfast, AND dinner recipes. I will be using this puff pastry recipe instead of buying the frozen kind for a host of different recipes. Thank you for sharing!
