Cream Puffs with Egg Custard Filling

One of my favorite Chinese desserts that my mother used to make when we were little. Now, I can make it for my own children! And they love them!

Puff Pastries

Ingredients 1 cup water 1/2 cup oil 1 cup flour 1/2 tsp. salt 4 eggs

Directions 1. Mix water and oil over low-medium heat until it starts to boil. 2. Turn off heat. 3. Mix the flour and salt together and add to the water and oil. 4. Stir well and let the mixture cool to room temperature. 5. Beat in the eggs one by one until a smooth batter forms. 6. Drop the batter onto a cookie sheet. 1x recipe should yield about 18 medium puffs. 7. Bake at 350F for 30 to 35 minutes.

Egg Custard Filling

Cook over low to medium heat, stirring continuously, until mixture is thick and bubbly. 3. Remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla extract. 3. Let mixture cool completely. 4. Add the egg yolks and return to low-medium heat until it starts to bubble. 5. Let cool before filling in puff pastries.
