A creme puff! Ms. Amy Shelley had the wonderful idea to make these. Neither of us had made them before, but we did good! They came out better than we had hoped and now that we know how simple they are I have a feeling we'll each be making them more often. You can make them too:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 box of custard or pudding
The directions are pretty simple. Just melt the shortening in a sauce pan, add the boiling water, and add the flour. Mix it all until the flour becomes a big ball. Take it off the heat and add the eggs one at a time, mixing in between each one.
Once everything is mixed place the dough by heaping tablespoons on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 450, and then another 10 minutes at 425. Once they are cooled, cut them open (half way), and fill them.
Voila, you have le puff de creme!
