Cream Puff Dessert

My nephew will be getting married soon and on Saturday is the bridal shower. What I plan on bringing to the shower is a dessert – Cream Puff Dessert to be exact.

What I like about the dessert is that it’s easy and also it’s made with stuff around the kitchen that you probably have on hand already!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3-1/2 cups cold milk
  • 2 packages (3.9 ounces each) instant vanilla or chocolate pudding mix
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/4 cup chocolate ice cream topping
  • chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan bring the water and butter to a boil over medium heat. DSCN0102Add flour all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. DSCN0103Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.

  2. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. DSCN0106Bake at 400° for 25 to 30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For filling, beat the cream cheese, milk and pudding mix in a large bowl until smooth. Spread over puff; refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  4. Spread with whipped topping; refrigerate until serving. Drizzle with the chocolate and sprinkle with nuts.DSCN0113 Refrigerate leftovers.DSCN0190
