This recipe is the same as my mom's, and I have had it for years. I used to make them all the time, and then suddenly had difficulty with the puffs flopping after they are taken out of the oven. After reading many reviews, and checking with my niece's mema since my mom long ago passed away, I lowered the oven temp and cooked them at a steady 400 for 30 minutes, (mema said 45 minutes, but I thought that was WAY too long) and then poked them with a toothpick to let the steam escape. They cooled on a rack, and then I left them overnight to be filled prior to serving. Thankfully, and finally, my puffs stayed puffed. Made the filling the morning before serving so it was sufficiently chilled. Everyone loved them, and now I feel much more confident to make them more often without flopping! Glad that I can use this old time family favorite again! Thanks for all the helpful reviews!
