1 cup water
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 tsp sugar
1 cup flour, sifted
4 large eggs
6 oz. semisweet chocolate pieces
1 Tbs. vegetable shortening
3/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar
3 cups milk
4 large eggs
1 Tbs. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring water, butter and sugar to a full rolling boil in a large saucepan. Add flour all at once. Stir vigorously with wooden spoon about 1 minute or until mixture forms a smooth ball that leaves sides of pan. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Add 4 eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition, until paste is shinny and smooth. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls, 3-inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 40 minutes until golden. Cool on wire rack.
Combine flour and sugar in saucepan; stir in milk. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly over low heat until bubbly. Cook 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Beat eggs lightly in bowl; beat in 1 cup hot milk mixture and return eggs to saucepan. Cook 1-2 minutes more (do not boil). Add butter and vanilla; pour into bowl and cover with plastic wrap touching top for 2 hours.
Melt chocolate and shortening together over low heat (or microwave).
Cut tops off cream puffs; fill with custard. Top with melted chocolate or sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

The cream puffs look delicious. I found an old recipe of my moms for cream puffs when I was cleaning out a drawer one day. I tucked it away to try and then forgot about it.
Your food always looks so yummy!!! I have taken the lazy way out the past few years and purchased frozen bite size cream puffs. I used to make them , but not for years. LOL
