VANILLA CREAM PUFFS
Fluffy pastry shells filled with a thick vanilla custard and drizzled with chocolate sauce. Recipe for Vanilla Cream Puffs from our Desserts recipe section.

Ingredients

Cream Puffs Ingredients

1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1/4 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs

Custard Filling Ingredients

2 tablespoons Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups 1% low-fat milk
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup commercial chocolate sauce

Directions

1 – Cream Puff Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2 – Combine water, salt, Splenda Granulated Sweetener and butter in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until butter melts. Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball. The mixture resembles mashed potatoes. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.
3 – Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed with an electric mixer. Scrap down the sides of bowl occasionally and beat until batter is smooth.
4 – Spoon mixture heaping tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between puffs.
5 – Bake immediately for 35 minutes or until puffs are golden brown and have a crisp shell. (Do not open the oven door during the first 15 minutes of baking time.) Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.
6 – Custard Filling Directions: Combine Splenda Granulated Sweetener and cornstarch in a heavy saucepan; gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 6 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Cook 1 additional minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir about 1/4 the hot mixture into egg yolks; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and strain mixture through a sieve; cover the surface of the custard with wax paper or plastic wrap to prevent a film from forming on the surface.
7 – Cut tops off and fill with 2 1/2 tablespoons custard; replace tops and drizzle with 1 tablespoon chocolate sauce. Serve immediately.
8 – Storage: Store baked unfilled cream puff shells in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 24 hours or freeze up to 2 months.
NOTES:

Vanilla Soufflé Cakes with Molten Chocolate
Looking for a dessert the whole family will love? You’ve come to the right place. These delightful golden brown cakes are bursting with a rich chocolate sauce. And with six

individual cakes created, there will plenty for everyone at the table.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 1 hour and 30 minutes

Butter and sugar to coat ramekins
2 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons water
1 cup low-fat (2%) cottage cheese
3 eggs, separated
1/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup plus 6 pinches sugar

Directions
Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: 1 ramekin
Equipment: 6 six-ounce ramekins or custard cups

1. Butter the ramekins and coat with sugar, shaking out the excess.

2. To make the sauce: Combine the chocolate and water in a small heatproof bowl set in a skillet of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Place the bowl in the freezer for 30 minutes or more to firm up the sauce while you make the soufflé cakes.

3. To make the soufflé cakes (up to 3 hours in advance): In bowl of food processor, combine cottage cheese, egg yolks, flour, salt, and vanilla extract. Process until the cheese is perfectly smooth, 2–3 minutes. Scrape the mixture into a medium bowl. Set aside.

4. In a clean, dry mixer bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until soft peaks form when the beaters are lifted. Add sugar gradually and beat until stiff and glossy but not dry. Fold one-quarter of the egg whites into the cheese mixture. Fold in remaining egg whites. Pour batter into ramekins. Chill until ready to bake.

5. When the chocolate mixture is firm, use a teaspoon or a tiny scoop to form 6 chocolate balls. Refrigerate the balls on a saucer until needed.

6. To bake: Position a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Just before baking, sprinkle the top of each soufflé cake evenly with a pinch of sugar. Center a ball of chocolate sauce on top of each cake (the chocolate will sink part way into the cake while baking). Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake 13–15 minutes until the soufflé cakes are puffed golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
