Good things come in little packages with these melt-in-your-mouth puffs. Besides crabmeat, I've used whipped cream or pudding as the filling to create bite-sized desserts.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

Nutritional Facts

3 puffs equals 195 calories, 16 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 98 mg cholesterol, 369 mg sodium, 7 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 7 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the 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 for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Immediately cut a slit in puffs to allow steam to escape. When cool, split puffs open; remove tops and set aside. Discard soft dough from inside.
  3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the remaining filling ingredients. Just before serving, spoon filling into puffs; replace tops. Yield: 4 dozen.

I've made these puffs with ham salad (3 oz. size of can ham) or chicken salad. Everyone enjoys them especially the ham puffs.
