Frank Vascellaro and his mother Rosalie head to the kitchen to make some cream puffs. Check out the recipe below.


1-cup Water
1-cup Flour
1-stick Butter
1- 16 ounce Heavy Whipping cream
1-carton Vanilla flavored instant Jell-O pudding
1-cup Milk
Powdered sugar


For cream puffs:

In a sauce pan, put one cup of water and melt a stick of butter bringing to a boil. When it boils add one cup of flour. Remove this from the heat and stir together.

Stir in one egg at a time very thoroughly until each egg is absorbed in the mixture.

Take the dough mixture, about a full tablespoon, and place on a cookie sheet pushing dough from a wider bottom to narrower top to form the puff.

Bake the cream puff dough in the oven about 35 minutes at 400-degrees. Do not open the oven while they are baking.

For the filling:

In a mixing bowl add milk, cream, and pudding. Whip until fluffy. Set aside in refrigerator.

After the cream puffs are cool cut them in half. Remove some of the doughy part inside with your fingers.

Now, fill the cream puff with the vanilla filling.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
