Cream Puffs!

It's been a while since I've made these and today I had such a big craving for them. YUM is all I can say, messy to eat but so worth it.

I can't remember where I got the recipe from, it's been SO long, a few years at least.

Cream Puffs

1 cup flour
1 tsp white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
4 large eggs

Yields 18 med size puffs

Boil water and butter till butter is melted, mix flour, sugar and salt in a small bowl and add all at one time stirring constantly till mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat.

Scrape into mixing bowl and beat for a few min on low to release steam from dough.

Let sit for a few more min then add slightly beaten eggs and beat till dough is a thick and smooth paste.

Spoon on pan a couple of inches apart and place in preheated 400 oven for 15 min and then lower heat to 350 for another 30 min.

Turn oven off and with oven door slightly ajar let puffs dry out for another 10 min. Remove from oven and cool.

When cool cut them in half, putting a good dollop of whipped cream on the bottom half, add peaches or strawberries and cover with top half. Dust with icing sugar.
