* Recipe Featured in Karen's cookbook - Happiness is Homemade in Door County. (Available at Amazon or in Door County at Seaquist Orchards or Nature Works)

Cream Puffs:

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup butter

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup white flour

2 eggs


1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/2 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium saucepan, bring water, butter, and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and beat over low heat until mixture leaves the side of the pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat and continue beating to cool down dough, about 2 minutes. Add one egg at a time, beating well after each egg. Continue to beat until mixture has a satin-like sheen.

Drop 1/4-cup mounds of batter, swirling the top of each, onto parchment- lined pans. Bake for about 50 min or until they turn brown and puff up. Remove from oven and cut 1 or 2 slits on each side. Return to oven for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

For filling, beat heavy cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Cut tops off puffs and fill with cream. Return tops and dust with powdered sugar.
