Cream Puffs

Cream Puffs

1/4 c margarine
1/2 c boiling water
1/2 c sifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Lightly grease cookie sheet.  Melt margarine in boiling water in a medium sauce pan over high heat.  Turn heat off and add flour and salt all at once.  Stir vigorously until dough pulls away from the sides of the pan.  Beat in eggs one at a time blending and beat until dough is stiff.  Drop by spoonfuls.  Bake 12 minutes at 450 then reduce temperature to 350 degrees for 10 additional minutes. Cool on a rack.  Slice top off. Serve with berries that have been sprinkled in sugar with a squeeze of lemon and a tsp of lemon zest.  Top with whipped cream or put a scoop of ice cream in the shell, top with the berries and whipped cream.  Don't forget to put the top back on!  

P.S.  The shells can be used for scoops of savory - chicken salad or tuna salad!

My mom, referred to as Mama L, and I have been talking about starting a blog for quite some time now. We are always trying new recipes and making new crafts - always being told by friends and family that we need to sell our creations. Instead of selling them we've decided to share our crafty ideas, yummy recipes along with our funny adventures here on our blog. Please follow us and enjoy. We are always trying to find new places to explore, new recipes to cook for our families and most of all we're just having fun!
