Passover Cream Puffs
Submitted by: SueW
1/3 cup butter, margarine or peanut oil
1 cup cake meal
4 eggs, unbeaten and at room temperature
1 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
Combine margarine, water, salt and sugar in saucepan and bring to a vigorous boil over medium heat. Turn heat to low; add cake meal. With wooden spoon beat fast until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a stiff ball. Remove from heat. Add unbeaten eggs, one at a time, beating very thoroughly after each addition until dough is smooth and thick. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto well-greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Yields 8 large, 16 medium or 30 to 32 small puffs.
Note: There are two ways to bake:
First: Bake at 425F for 30 minutes; then for 40 minutes at 325F until the puffs are crisp to touch. Cut off tops of cooled puffs and fill with sweetened whipped cream or favorite filling.
Second: Bake in 400F oven 40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Don't open oven during early part of baking or the shells will be ruined. Cool, cut off tops, remove excess doughy portions and put back in oven to dry out, if desired. Fill, replace tops.
