Cream Puff Pastry

These are super easy to make and bake up good.
Tasty golden and crispy puff pastry that you
cut open and fill with sweatened whipped cream.
Don't be afraid to try and bake these thinking
they are too difficult to prepare at home.
This is one of the easiest pastries to bake.
Ihis recipe makes about 12 puff pastries.

1 cup water
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
Pastry cream filling

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Bring water, salt and butter to a boil in a
saucepan and then add in the flour all at once.
I use a wooden spoon and stir, stir, stir
until the flour is well incorperated and a
somewhat creamy dough is formed.
Remove saucepan from heat and add in eggs
one at a time again, stir, stir, stir.
A silky dough is what your looking for.
Place batter by tablespoonfuls 2" apart on
a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes.
Open oven door and turn off oven heat.
Let the puff pastries slowly cool in oven.
Remove to cut open and fill with pastry cream.
