Crowning Glory Cream Puff

Makes: 10 to 12 servings
Prep 35 mins Bake 400°F 40 mins Cool 30 mins
Crowning Glory Cream Puff
  • 1  cup  water
  • 1/2  cup  butter or margarine
  • 1  teaspoon  sugar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 4  eggs
  • 2  4-serving-size-packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2  cups  milk
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 3/4  cup  whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1  tablespoon  milk
  • 1/2 16  ounce can  chocolate frosting (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4  cup  sliced almonds, toasted

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, butter, sugar and salt. Bring to boiling. Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously. Cook and stir until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Cool 10 minutes.

2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with a wooden spoon after each addition. Drop dough by large spoonfuls, forming a 9-inch ring in a greased 12-inch pizza pan (you'll have 10 to 12 mounds of cream puff dough).

3. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack. When cool, using a serrated knife, cut ring in half horizontally. Place bottom half on a serving plate. If you like, use a fork to remove soft dough from inside puffs.

4. For filling, in a medium bowl, beat the pudding mix, 2 cups milk, and vanilla with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute or until smooth and thickened.

5. Fold in whipped cream. Spread filling over bottom half of the cream puff ring. Replace the top of the ring.

6. Stir the 1 tablespoon milk into frosting. Spoon over ring. Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Cover and chill for 2 to 4 hours or until firm. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
