How to Make Best Ever Cream Puffs


  • 1Preheat oven to 400 F. In a medium size saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring water, butter, and salt to a boil. Add flour (all at once), and stir quickly until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Set aside for 5 minutes.Add 1 egg and beat hard to blend. Add remaining eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; each egg must be completely blended in before the next egg is added. The mixture will change from an almost curdled stage to a smooth appearance When it is smooth, spoon 12 mounds of dough onto a large rimmed baking sheet.Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
