Cream Puffs

Serves: 5



Take one and a half pints water and put into a porcelain kettle, let it come to a boil; add quarter pound butter and let it melt; then stir in quickly three-quarters pound flour, and three teaspoonfuls Royal baking powder (sifted into flour three or four times), this forms a stiff dough; take from fire, let cool, then beat in six eggs, (two at a time); stir to a smooth paste; have baking pan greased, take one large tablespoonful at a time and lay in the pan, a little space between each; bake about twenty minutes, in hot oven, to a delicate brown.

Take one pint fresh milk, two tablespoonfuls cornstarch, mixed with a little milk; quarter pound pulverized sugar and two eggs; stir well together, and cook until it thickens, stirring all the time; flavor with vanilla, or any seasoning you prefer; split the cake at one side, and fill with this cream.
