  1. Mix together vanilla instant pudding mix, cream and milk. Cover and refrigerate to set.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. In a large pot, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms a ball. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon or stand mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Centers should be dry.
  5. When the shells are cool, either split and fill them with the pudding mixture, or use a pastry bag to pipe the pudding into the shells.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Well.. all the reviews say its amazing! I'm a good cook but I have no idea what happened. Very disappointed. The puffs turned into mush, they never did puff or dry, instead they fried in the ove...

This recipe is fabulous IF you read the comments of how to successfully make them. If you don't read the comments you will end up with beautiful cream puffs that deflate while cooling. Here's ...

I have a comment and a question. The cream is awesome to say the least, however please tell me where I went wrong. My shells did not rise much at all so I could not fill them. I had to use on...

This was so simple I have to say! And the cream filling is to die for, I added a little almond extract to mine. I brought this to work, and boy do they just think I'm the next best thing! If ...
