Combine two Christmas classics–eggnog and cream puffs–in this recipe. I've received a number of rave reviews and recipe requests, so I think this one goes on the nice list!

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Additional confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large saucepan, bring water, butter and salt to a rolling boil. Add flour all at once and nutmeg and stir until blended. Cook over medium heat, stirring vigorously until mixture pulls away from sides of pan. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until smooth. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 1 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake 30-35 minutes or until puffed, very firm and golden brown. Pierce sides of each puff with tip of a knife. Cool on wire racks. Cut top third off each puff.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar, eggnog, vanilla and nutmeg; beat until soft peaks form. Fill cream puffs with whipped cream just before serving; replace tops. Dust with additional confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately. Yield: about 2 dozen.
