Crab Puffs

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 607
Yield: 50 - 60 puffs


1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 whole eggs
1 egg, separated
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon milk
2 packages frozen crabmeat, thawed, drained (or 2 cans, drained)
1 teaspoon pepper
greens of 6 green onions, chopped
2 1/2 teaspoons dill weed


Preheat oven to 400°. Combine water and butter in medium saucepan; bring to a boil and add flour all at once. Stir vigorously with wooden spoon until dough leaves sides of pan and forms smooth ball. Remove from heat and beat in 4 whole eggs, one at a time, until thick dough is formed. Place level teaspoons of dough 1 inch apart on foil-lined cookie sheet. Mix separated egg yolk and milk, and brush dough with this mixture.

Bake 10 minutes at 400°, then reduce heat to 300° and continue cooking for 25–30 minutes until puffs are high, but not all the way through, to prepare for filling.

Combine all remaining ingredients and stuff puffs with mixture.

Note: Puffs may be frozen and reheated on cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 375°.
