Classic Cream Puffs Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  • Boil water and butter in a small sauce pan. Add flour and stir briskly over low flame until a ball forms.
  • Remove mixture from heat and beat in eggs, with wooden spoon, one at a time in order to keep batter smooth. Continue to beat with wooden spoon until smooth.
  • If making small pastries, drop by tablespoonfuls two inches apart onto a baking sheet. If making large pastries, use double the batter and drop them three inches apart.
  • Bake 20 minutes for larger pastries and a little less for smaller ones or until lightly browned. As the crust browns, the inside opens up (Undercooking results in a sticky inner dough and a less open texture).
  • Remove from oven, pierce the side of each to let the steam out and set aside to cool.
