We always made cream puffs for special occasions when I was growing up in our family of seven. Sometimes we used a custard filling, but this version with whipped cream and peaches is the best. —Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh or frozen peaches, thawed
  • Additional confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, butter, nutmeg and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack. Immediately split puffs open; remove tops and set aside. Discard soft dough from inside. Cool puffs.
  3. For filling, in a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form.
  4. Just before serving, fill puffs with whipped cream and peaches. Dust with additional confectioners' sugar.
