Recipe for Cream Puffs With Crab Filling


    Cream Puffs with Crab Filling

    Cream Puffs
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup butter
    1 cup flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 eggs

    Crab Filling
    11 ounces cream cheese (8 ounces and 3 ounces)
    1 cup mayonnaise or sour cream
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon horseradish
    2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
    7 ounces fresh crab or shrimp

    Mix crab filling a day ahead and refrigerate.

    Heat water, butter and salt to rolling boil. Reduce heat and quickly stir in flour with wooden spoon until mixture leaves the sides of the pan in a ball. Remove from heat and add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition until mixture is smooth and not glossy. Drop 1 tablespoon (size is optional) on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown.

    Let puffs completely cool before slicing.
