Cream Puffs

(5 - 6 Cream Puffs or 9 - 10 Mini Puffs)

Puffs

Filling

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg. (5.1 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400°F.

For puffs, heat water and margarine or butter to a rolling boil. Stir in baking mix with wooden spoon over low heat until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat and add eggs. Beat until smooth. Drop 1/4 to 1/3 cup on ungreased baking sheet, about 3” apart. Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until golden and puffed. Cool completely. Cut off tops and clean out soft dough. For filling, combine cream cheese and pudding mix. Blend on low. Add milk a little at a time. Mix well. Fill puffs and replace tops. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Variation: Top with strawberries, chocolate sauce or your favorite topping.
