Simple Dessert Cream Puffs

1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 eggs
Your favorite prepared pudding

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large pot, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms a ball. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon or stand mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Centers should be dry. When the shells are cool, carefully cut open. Fill bottom half with pudding and replace top. Dust with powdered sugar or dollop with chocolate ganache and whipped cream.

Sound good! I might bring that to the dreaded Mother's Day family gig approaching (or book club of course).
