Ingredients

Cream Puffs

1
cup water
1/2
cup butter or margarine
1
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
4
eggs
Powdered sugar

Eggnog Cream

1
package (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
1
cup milk
1
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1
teaspoon rum extract
1/4
teaspoon ground ginger
2
cups whipping (heavy) cream

  • 1 Heat oven to 400ºF. In 2 1/2-quart saucepan, heat water and butter to rolling boil. Stir in flour. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Beat in eggs, all at once; continue beating until smooth.
  • 2 Drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls about 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool away from draft.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat all Eggnog Cream ingredients except cream with electric mixer on low speed 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Add cream. Beat on high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until soft peaks form.
  • 4 Cut off tops of cooled puffs; pull out any soft dough. Fill puffs with Eggnog Cream; replace tops. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

Fill the cream puffs, cover and refrigerate up to 3 hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

Instead of sprinkling the cream puffs with powdered sugar, brush the tops with light corn syrup and sprinkle with colored sugar or nonpareils.
