Mom's Tips

February 26th, 2013 by Jim Field

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs, unbeaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine water with butter and salt in large saucepan.  Heat until butter melts and water boils.  Turn heat low; add flour all at once and beat vigorously with wooden spoon until it leaves the sides of pan in a smooth compact ball.  Remove from heat.  Beat in eggs one at a time until smooth and satiny.  Drop by tablespoonful onto large greased cookie sheet.  Six on a sheet.  (Have a point at top.)  Bake 40 to 50 minutes until high and golden.  Put on wire rack to cool.   Refrigerate until serving time, then fill with cream puff filling and serve.
