I asked my 19 year old son to follow the recipe and make cream puffs for me while I ran to the store. They turned out better than when I make them!
The recipe is my grandmothers.
4 large eggs
Bring water and butter to rolling boil. Stir in flour over low heat, stirring until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat.
Stir in eggs one at a time, beating until dough is a smooth ball. Using teaspoon drop on cookie sheet about 3" apart.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until puffed, golden brown and dry.
Custard Cream Filling
4 egg yolks, beaten
Mix sugar, flour and salt. Stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir about half of the mixture into the egg yolks. Blend this into the hot milk mixture. Bring just to a boil. Add vanilla. Chill. Fill puffs.
