Pistachio Puffs Recipe

Our Home Economists added an Irish touch to these traditional dessert treats—with mouthwatering results! The old-fashioned pastry mixes up quickly before baking. Then a smooth green filling of whipped cream and pistachio pudding fills the round shells easily —thanks to a simple instant mix.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 1-3/4 cups whipped topping

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, butter, sugar and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from heat; let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 2. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until mixture is smooth and shiny. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Immediately cut a slit in each puff to allow steam to escape; cool. Split puffs; remove soft dough from inside with a fork. Prepare pudding according to package directions for pie; fold in whipped topping. Spoon into cream puffs. Yield: about 2 dozen.
