  • Prep Time: 30 min
  • Cook Time: 35 min
  • Ready Time: 90 min
  • Yield: 12 cream puffs

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Smucker's® Orchard's Finest® Pacific Mountain Strawberry Preserves
  • 1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Preparation Directions

  • In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup water, the butter and 1/4 teaspoon salt to boiling over medium-high heat. With wooden spoon, stir in flour. Reduce heat to low; beat vigorously about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time, beating vigorously after each addition until mixture is smooth and glossy. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, on cookie sheet, forming 12 mounds.
  • Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from pan to cooling rack; prick side of each puff with tip of sharp knife to release steam. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese and preserves with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Fold in whipped topping until combined; refrigerate.
  • Just before serving, cut each puff in half horizontally. Spoon about 1/2 cup cream cheese mixture into bottom half of each puff. Place tops over filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately. Store in refrigerator.
