Strawberry Cream Puffs

Kathie Carr Recipe

I fell in love with cream puffs when I was in 4-H. These were always one of my favorite special desserts.

They are rich so you will want to make them small.

Ingredients

1 c
water
1/2 c
butter
1 c
flour
4
eggs
1
quart fresh strawberries
2 c
cool whip
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400. Heat water and butter to a rolling boil, stir in flour. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from heat, mix in eggs all at once and stir rapidly until smooth.
2
If you have an ice cream scoop that measures 1/8 cup use it to drop dough on to an ungreased baking sheet. (If you do not have a 1/8 cup scoop use a 1/4 cup measure and fill half full.) Bake 35-40 minutes until golden. Cool completely.
3
Meanwhile clean and cut strawberries in small chunks. Stir into Cool Whip.
Cut off tops of cream puffs and pull out any soft dough from the inside. Fill empty puffs with strawberry mixture. Replace tops and dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
