My hubby and I are going to a friend's house for an Italian dinner tonight and I said I'd bring dessert. I had considered making cannoli but remembered making Cream puffs years ago and how everyone loves them. This recipe with all the wonderful advice on the reviews is perfect, so give it a try!! Here is my process: I added some vanilla extract to the dough and just dumped in all the eggs, at the end, while mixing with a hand mixer. That's good advice as it turned out great! I used a soup spoon to drop globs on parchment paper. My oven bakes a tad hot so I checked after 10 minutes and turned it down to 400 for the last 13 minutes. I also poked them with a toothpick when finished baking and let them cool in the oven with the door ajar. I only made 1/2 a batch of the filling and it nicely filled 20 of the puffs. For the filling, I put the milk, whipcream, extract & pudding into a plastic container and shook it up. (I added a dash of almond extract). After the puffs were cooled I sliced off the tops and filled with a spoonful of pudding. I replaced the top and dusted them all with powered sugar. YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY!. I think I'll fill the four remaining puffs with some Butter pecan Icecream for a special treat.
