Simple And Easy Cream Puffs


These cream puffs are the dessert people BEG me to bring to parties. What they don’t know is how truly easy they are to make!


  • 1/2 cup one stick butter
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding, 3.4 oz each
  • 1 1/3 cup cold whole milk
  • powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Melt the stick of butter and water to a rolling boil
Stir in flour and stir vigorously over low heat until mixture leaves the pan (comes off the sides) and is in a ball (about 1 minute)
Remove from heat and cool for a couple of minutes
Beat in eggs (one at a time) with a mixer
Beat mixture until smooth and velvety
Drop by spoonfuls (walnut sized) onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper
Bake until DRY, 20-25 minutes (maybe longer)
Allow cream puffs to cool completely
Mix instant vanilla pudding with whole milk until the pudding is dissolved
Put the mixture in the refrigerator (at least an hour)
Slice the cream puffs in half and fill with the chilled pudding
Sprinkle with powdered sugar
You can make different flavors of filling by simply changing the flavor of pudding.
