June - Beth Cholette

This is an entry from Beth Cholette! It's a recipe. Thanks Beth!

My favorite month is June, for several reasons:

It contains the summer solstice, which is the longest day of sunlight of the
year. :) It is the official start of summer and warm weather (I hate the cold!). ;)
And last but not least, I got married in June. :D

So, in honor of the latter, I thought I would send a recipe. This is my
grandmother's recipe for Cream Puffs--since my grandmother passed away in
2000, my mother made them in honor of her for my June 2003 wedding.

Cream Puffs
1/2 c. butter
1 c. flour
1 c. boiling water
4 eggs

Add butter to boiling water. Add flour all at once and cook until ball forms;
remove from heat and cool slightly. Add eggs one at a time, beating hard.
Drop by spoon onto greased cookie sheet (makes about 2 dozen). Bake 20
minutes at 425-degrees and then another 20 minutes at 300-degrees. When puffs
are cool, split at fill with your choice of pudding* or cream.
*My grandmom filled these using instant pudding mix in the french vanilla flavor.
