  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs

Vanilla Cream

  • 1 cup  milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter, sugar, salt and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil and quickly stir in the flour with a spoon. Continue to stir until you see a film forms on the bottom of the pan, like 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool for a bit, about 3 minutes. Add 4 eggs, one at a time, be sure that you incorporate each egg after each addition.
  • Transfer the pastry puff mix to a large pastry bag fitted with a 5/8-inch plain tip. Pipe 3 cm rounds onto each prepared pan.
  • Gently press back the pointed peaks with a moistened finger, rounding tops to ensure even rising. Brush tops with reserved egg wash.
  • Bake until puffs rise and are golden brown, about 30 minutes; do not open the oven till the 30 min is over otherwise the pastry puff will not grow at all.

Vanilla Cream

  • In a medium bowl add egg yolks and sugar, beat at medium-high speed until thick and creamy (approximately 5 minutes) add the flour and mixed again.
  • In a medium pot warm the milk with the vanilla and set apart a 1/3 of the warm milk and add it to the egg mixture and continue beating until smooth.
  • Add egg mixture to the medium pot with the rest of the milk and cook over medium-low heat, continuously whisking until mixture starts to boil and you have the desired texture, remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl and let cool completely.
  • Once it is cool down, transfer the t vanilla cream to a large pastry bag and fill each pastry puff. Serve immediately
