Ingredients
Pastry shells:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
Filling
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Jello Sugar Free Vanilla Instant Pudding mix powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Boil 1 cup water with the butter and salt in a large saucepan.
  3. Add the flour all at once and cook over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the mixture pulls away from the sides without sticking.
  4. Remove from the heat and beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Let cool.
  5. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  6. With a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, pipe the dough into 9 mounds leaving space in between as they expand.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes, reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake for approximately 10 minutes more or until golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and cool. (I keep mine in cooling oven with door ajar as humidity in Florida tends to un-crisp the pastries)
  9. Beat the whipping cream with the instant pudding powder and extract using electric beaters.
  10. Split the pastries and hollow them out; fill and put the tops back on.
