Another Tea Party Favorite

Another favorite of mine is Cream Puffs....For Tea parties I ususally make them smaller but for family larger.....
Cream Puffs **
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs... reserve 2 egg yolks for pudding
sprinkle of salt
Bring water and butter to boil in saucepan. Add flour alrop by teaspoonl at once... Add eggs one at a time beating constantly. Drop by teaspoon the desired size onto greased baking sheet... 450 degrees for 10 minutes and the 300 degrees for 25 minutes....
Vanilla Pudding ****
3/4 up sugar
1/4 cup corstarch
2 cups milk
2 eggs yolks plus your reserved egg yolks
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tables butter
Combine sugar and cornstarch and salt... Mix very well... add milk in saucepan and cook on medium heat { I make double boiler by adding larger pan of water under so does not scorch} stir constantly... set aside... In bowl beat eggs and butter ... Stir into other mixture in small amount and return to cook for one minte or so.... Chill and fill... Sprinkle with powdered sugar for serving...
MEMO> for making butterscotch pudding.... substitute 1 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of white sugar used in vanilla pudding and following same recipe.
