Cook Time 30minutes
Total Time 1hour
⅞cup/ 200ml Water
10tablespoon/ 150g Butter
1½cup/ 200g Flour
1pack Vanilla pudding powder or 40g Cornstarch with vanilla extract
⅞cup/ 200ml Milkfor pudding powder
⅞cup/ 200ml Heavy whipping cream
Sweetener to tasteoptional
Place water and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir it with a wooden spoon and bring to boil.
Reduce heat and add the flour slowly stirring continuously until it forms a ball that pulls away from the sides of the saucepan.
Remove from heat and leave it cool down before start adding the eggs, one by one beating them. Keep beating until the egg is fully incorporated.
Use 2 spoons to sort the dough into walnut sized piles onto a baking sheet on the tray. Place them far from each other as they are going to expand.
Preheat the oven into 390ºF / 200ºC degree and put the pastries in to bake them for 25 - 35 minutes (depends on the oven) until puffed up, dry, and golden brown. (Try not to open the oven door before they develop a crust as the pastry can fall due to sudden temperature fall.)
Meanwhile the pastry is baking use the time to make the cream. Use vanilla pudding powder and follow instructions on its box. There are all sort of brands so everything depends on what we prefer. For a sugar free recipe use sugar free vanilla powder. Some we only have to beat with a certain amount of milk, others we need to cook to get the pudding. It needs to be stiff.
Turn heating off and put the pudding aside to cool down. If cooking sounds difficult, use the instant version, whisk the vanilla cream and set it aside in the fridge.
Whisk the whipping cream separately, cover and put it in the fridge, too.
When both vanilla cream and whipping cream is cold mix them together.
Transfer the cooled pastries to a tray and slice the tops off. Scrape the inside bit if necessary.
Spoon the vanilla and whipping cream combo into the bottom pastries and place the tops on.
