Ingredients

Cream Puffs

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs

Strawberry Cream

  • 3 oz strawberry Jello 1 package
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

Cream Puffs

  • Put the water, butter, salt and sugar into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and add all the four at once and stir until completely incorporated.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and stir in completely. Batter should look silky and soft
  • Spoon 1 tsp. of batter 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Batter will not hold its shape perfectly. That is o.k.
  • Bake at 400° for 16-18 minutes
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the cookie sheet for about ten minutes. Then remove and let cool completely on wire racks.

Strawberry Cream

  • Add the strawberry Jello and whipping cream to a medium-sized bowl. Whip with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.

Assembly

  • Spoon a portion of the strawberry cream into a decorator's bag (or plastic bag with a corner cut off) fitted with a large round decorator's tip.
  • With the tip, poke a hole in the bottom of each cream puff and squeeze the filling in until cream puff is full.
  • Dip tops in melted chocolate, if desired.
  • Chill until ready to eat.
