Cream Puffs

Making cream puffs is so easy to do.
You can fill them with plain whipped cream
vanilla or chocolate pudding or a rich
Ricotta cheese type of a cannoli filling.

1 cup cold water
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
3 large eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat,
place in the water and butter bring.
Stir in flour all at once until blended.
Remove mixture from saucepan to a mixing bowl.
With the paddle attachment, mix at low speed
until the dough has cooled slightly.
Add in the eggs one at a time making a dough.
Scoop up about 2 tablespoons of the batter and
place 2" apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes or until browned and puffed up.
Remove, cool and fill with what ever you desire.
