Grandma's Cream Puffs

Grandma was definitely not a cream puff, but she sure knew how to make them!

1/2 c. butter
1 c. water
1 c. flour
4 eggs

Boil water and butter together, add flour when boiling. Stir mixture until it forms a ball. Remove from stove and add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Drop big spoonfuls onto a baking sheet, bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

3/4 c. sugar
7 T. flour
1/2 tsp salt

Mix above in bowl.

In separate bowl mix together

1 tsp vanilla
2 egg yolks
2 c. milk

Add to flour mixture slowly. Put on stove and stir over medium heat until boiling and thickened. Cool.

To serve, slice each cream puff horizontally and put a large scoop of pudding inside. Place on a plate and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Sprinkle powdered sugar over all.
