Recipe Cupboard – Cream Puff Dessert

Cream Puff Dessert


Puff Dough

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 large eggs, room temperature


1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

3-1/2 cups cold 2% milk

2 packages (3.9 ounces each) instant chocolate pudding mix


1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1/4 cup chocolate ice cream topping

1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

1/3 cup chopped almonds


  •  In a large saucepan, bring the water and butter to a boil over medium heat. Add flour all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 3. For filling, beat the cream cheese, milk and pudding mix in a large bowl until smooth. Spread over puff; refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • 4. Spread with whipped topping; refrigerate until serving. Drizzle with the chocolate and caramel toppings; sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate leftovers.

I love this dessert using butterscotch pudding instead, but you can use any flavor you wish.  It is a great get together dessert.  Enjoy!
