Project Dessert

Started going Through a 200 page dessert book 1-at-a-time daily until i got to #80 and the recipes were getting horrible so #100-#200 will be desserts i find that look interesting to make...enjoy!


Price to make: $0.92

Yield: 18 cream puffs

Time: Prep – 10 minutes, Cook – 22 minutes


1 cup water

1/2 cup margarine

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

4 eggs

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Combine water and margarine and melt over low heat.
  • Stir in flour and salt until a smooth ball forms.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Mix in egg one at a time.
  • Spoon onto cookie sheet and bake for 22 minutes.
  • Prick top of puffs to let out steam.
  • When cool, cut puffs in half and fill with desired cream or ice cream.
  • Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Tips: By step 4 when you remove  from the heat, you have to work fast. Crack one egg at a time into the mixture and mix thoroughly so the egg gets incorporated before it cooks. When I made it, I think I didn’t leave it on the fire long enough because there was too much liquid. Therefore I had to bake them in muffin cups instead of on the cookie sheet. You can put whatever you would like inside, I ended up putting store bought custard inside. On top I put a cocoa glaze. Overall these were really great tasting.
