Ingredients

  • Puffs:

  • 1/2

    cup all-vegetable shortening

  • 1

    cup water

  • 1

    cup all purpose flour

  • 1/4

    tsp salt

  • 4

    eggs

  • Filling:

  • 1

    cup whipping cream

  • 3

    tbsp granulated sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Puffs: Bring, in a medium sized saucepan, shortening and water to a boil. Add flour and salt and stir well until mixture is smooth. It will look pasty at first, but will then come together to form a ball. Remove from heat and let cool 5 to 10 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer. Remove from oven and prick puffs in several places with toothpick (this lets the steam escape so that the puffs don't collapse). Let cool to room temperature. Cut each puff in half with serrated knife. Filling: Beat whipping cream and sugar on high speed of electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Place 1 tbsp of cream on each bottom puff, cover with top and drizzle with chocolate or caramel syrup, if desired. Or dust with icing sugar.
