International Cooking-French Profiteroles

Momma said that whoever found her book would get a surprise. Me and Mark asked Mommy where is your bag that you brung to church. We found it!

So we got a surprise. I made something. I did not know what I was making. I did not know until they were done! 🙂 I have been wanting to make “Creamy Puffs” for a long time! Here is the recipe.

Makes 12

  • 8 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 quart French vanilla ice cream
  • Or 1 cup whipped cream (made with 1 cup whipping cream and 1/3 cup powdered sugar)
  • Chocolate sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly butter baking sheet with 1 1/2 tsp butter and dust with flour. Set aside.
Add butter, water and salt to a medium saucepan. Bring to a soft boil and melt butter.
Take off of heat and add all the flour, mix well.
Place back on medium head and cook and stir about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Pour into large bowl and cool a couple of minutes.
Add 1 egg and beat with electric mixer on low until egg is beaten in. Do the same with the remaining eggs.Dough should be shiny yellow and thick.
Scoop dough onto cookie sheet using two tablespoons. Should make 12 mounds, space them about 3 inches apart because they grow.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Remove from oven and pierce puffs with sharp knife. Return to oven and bake another 10 minutes.
Remove and cool completely.
To serve, cut each puff in half, scoop ice cream or whipped cream in center. Top with other half of cream puff and spoon chocolate sauce over.
Eat and enjoy!

  1. I used to have to go to a department store for my grandmother and I walked about 4 or 5 miles one way. I would stop at a bakery on the way and get a good cream puff on the way, big enough you needed 2 hands to eat it. I’d pay on her bill and stop at the bakery on the way home and get another one. No chocolate on top, powered sugar only and were they good……….
