makes about 36 golf balls sized puffs
butter, room temperature
all purpose flour
cool whip, whole container
frozen raspberries, thawed
1Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2Boil water, butter, sugar, and salt.
3Add flour and remove from heat. Work together and return to heat. Continue working until thoroughly mixed and dough forms ball.
4Transfer dough to stand mixer bowl and let sit about 4 minutes.
5On LOW, add eggs one at a time, waiting until each is incorporated before adding the next.
6When mix is smooth, transfer to piping bag. Line a baking sheet with parchment and pipe golf ball sized swirls of dough.
7Bake for 10 minutes at 425 then reduce heat to 350 and bake another 10 minutes, until golden brown.
8Immediately pierce finished puffs to release steam using a paring knife. (Otherwise they will get soggy)
9While puffs are cooling, add raspberries to a blender or food processor and pulse a few times until pureed.
10Place a fine meshed strainer over a bowl and pour puree into strainer. Use a spatula to move the seeds out of the way to help the puree go through.
11Cream together the cream cheese and cool whip. Add raspberry puree a little at a time until mixed.
12Transfer to a piping bag and, using the hole from the steam release, fill the cream puffs. If you choose, you can dust with powdered sugar.
