Ingredients

Cream Puffs

1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour

Topping

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup turbinado (raw) sugar*

Filling

1 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 pint fresh raspberries, halved or coarsely chopped

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Combine water, butter and salt in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Vigorously stir in flour, using wooden spoon, 30-60 seconds or until mixture forms a ball.  Remove from heat. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition, until mixture is very smooth.

Place dough into large resealable plastic food bag. Cut 3/4-inch opening off one  corner of bag. Pipe 1 1/2-inch dollops dough, 1 inch apart, onto prepared baking sheets. (or, drop mixture by tablespoonfuls). Sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar; press almonds evenly into top of each dollop.

Bake 20-23 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. Pierce each cream puff with toothpick to allow steam to escape. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely.

Beat whipping cream and almond extract in bowl until stiff peaks form. Stir in powdered sugar and berries.

Just before serving, cut off top portions of cream puffs; scoop out insides, if necessary. Fill each with 1 heaping tablespoon filling. Place cream puff top over filling.

 

*Substitute decorator sugar.

Recipe Tip

- Turbinado sugar is a natural cane sugar that is light brown in color.

- Cream puffs can be made a day before serving; store in loosely covered container so they stay dry. Make filling up to 1 hour before filling cream puffs. Keep filling refrigerated.

Think Spring with Playful Polka Dots
April 11, 2014 by Amanda

Spring is finally in the air! The days are getting longer, my commute is getting shorter (thanks to less ice and snow), and we just bought a pair of pint-sized, yellow rubber boots for our toddler to go puddle-stomping. After a very long, very cold winter, I feel like a mama bear coming out of hibernation. Thank goodness for sunshine! More ...
