    Best cream puffs I've ever had! They turn out beautifully! I always have to make 2 batches because they go so fast! You can also fill them with whatever filing you like. I've done chocolate pudding, coconut pudding, and strawberry cream. I like classic the best, though. Thanks Martha! This recipe is easy and always a hit at parties and holidays!

    Okay. Hold on. When exactly do you need to put the flour? Damn, the instruction is just as worst as the ingredient list. =(

      I found that watching the videos on the side really helped, and I had no questions with the instructions. In addition to that it also gave some tips!

    Love this recipe and procedure in making cream puffs!!! This is my go to recipe. Following the fantastic video will produce perfect cream puffs all the time! The chef nailed it when he show the failed cream puff shells. This occurred when I followed other recipes.

    I can't wait to makes these! I have two questions, is there any reason why you use a wooden spoon and not a whisk? I just think I might have used a whisk... Also, how far ahead can I make these? And how long can they be kept frozen? Awesome recipe, thanks!
