Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • VANILLA FILLING:
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. In a small saucepan, bring water and butter to a rolling boil over medium heat. Add flour and salt all at once; beat until blended. Cook, stirring vigorously, until a film forms at the bottom of the pan, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until smooth. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny. Drop dough by 1-in. balls 1-1/2 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until puffed, very firm and golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
Meanwhile, whisk together pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes or until thickened; let stand 5 minutes. Fold in whipped topping. Cut puffs in half. Fill cream puffs with vanilla filling; replace tops. Dust with confectioners' sugar; serve immediately. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.
