Savory Mini Cream Puffs

Ben needed to take something for a potluck at work and it seemed many colleague's were contributing sweets so I thought little chicken salad cream puffs would be a good addition.

Of course the photo-op consists of the finished puffs in Tupperware containers, they travel nicely that way!
Here is the puff with the soft inside removed...

And here is the puff with the soft dough waiting to be removed.
Puffs galore!!!

You can use your favorite recipe for cream puffs and just make them miniature.


1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs

Heat water and butter in a saucepan to boiling, reduce heat and stir in the flour. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture leaves sides of pan and comes together in a ball. Remove from heat and beat in the four eggs.

Shape dough into desired shapes on a cookie sheet (parchment lined) and bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes (baking time will vary according to size of puffs).

I used a chicken filling and didn't use a recipe...
You can use canned chicken if you want to save time and add Hellman's to taste along with onion, diced sweet pickles, chopped nuts, herbs...whatever you like!
Ham salad is also a possibility as is creative~
