Classic Cream Puffs Recipe

YIELD: 24 cream puffs


1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
2 tablespoons powdered sugar (for dusting)

1 1/3 cups heavy cream (well chilled)
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a 3- to 4-quart pan, combine butter, water, and sugar. Over high heat, bring to a boil and then add the flour all at once and stir quickly until the dough comes together, forming a ball. Remove the pan from the heat and stir until flour is incorporated and mixture is smooth. Let cool about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the dough to the bowl of an electric mixer, and add eggs one at a time, mixing in between each addition until dough is smooth. Be careful not to mix more than necessary. 
  4. Scoop the dough into a pastry bag or gallon size Ziploc bag. Cut off 1/2 inch of the corner and attach a large piping tip if you have one. Pipe 24 mounds of dough (about 1 inch around) onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. READ MORE
