I think I speak for everyone when I say that easy recipes are the best. Baking used to intimidate me and I still see it somewhat as a challenge. With easy recipes like this one for cream puffs, I’m intimidated no more.
Easy Cream Puffs
The upside for easy baking is obvious – you bake more often. The downside is, unfortunately, also obvious. You bake more often and you get more rounded.
What isn’t obvious is a diverse name this dessert has in various countries. For example, they call them airbags in Germany and princes’ fritters in Bosnia. All fitting names, if you think about it.
I used to think it takes a pastry chef to make cream puffs but with this easy recipe even my husband can make them. Of course, this is a short cut recipe, not a real deal, but tasty even so. What are your favorite easy dessert recipes? My other go-to quickies are drunken peach cobbler and this quick yogurt dessert, but I will gladly spend a good portion of a day baking for a really good cake. The tiramisu cheesecake is worth all the effort!These airy, creamy puffs are so easy to make and even easier to eat, you won't be able to… Click To Tweet
1 package frozen Puff Pastry (2 sheets), thawed
1 ½ cup Milk
1 (5 oz.) package Vanilla Instant Pudding and Pie Filling
¾ cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unfold one pastry sheet and roll out to 10-inch square on a lightly floured surface. Using a cookie cutter, or rim of a glass, cut into rounds (or any other shape you wish). You will get 9 rounds with a 3-inch cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Repeat with the second pastry sheet. You can use different shaped cookie cutter or cut it into squares (no waste here). Bake 10 minutes; cool completely.
Meanwhile, beat milk and dry pudding in a large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Cut the puffs horizontally in half. Spoon pudding mixture evenly into bottom halves of puffs; cover with tops. Drizzle with melted chocolate or sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.Easy, four ingredient, cream puffs recipe that will become your favorite! Click To Tweet
