Vanilla Cream Puff Dessert Recipe

Vanilla Cream Puff Dessert Recipe

Inspired by classic cream puffs, this recipe is a wonderful treat. I've served it at Cub Scout banquets, birthday parties and holidays. I'm a regular baker, and this dessert is one of my all-time favorites.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs

  • 2-1/2 cups cold 2% milk
  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Chocolate syrup

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, butter and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Continue beating until smooth and shiny. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
