Ingredients

Cream Puffs-

Pumpkin Spice Filling-

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a saucepan, over med/high heat, add water and butter and cook until mixture comes to a soft boil and bubbles everywhere.
  • Remove from heat and add the combined sugar, salt, and flour at once and stir quickly until everything is incorporated.
  • Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and start beating mixture. Beat in one egg at a time, continue to beat after each addition.
  • Fill a piping bag with some cream puff mixture and pipe small cream puffs (a little bigger than a regular teaspoon but round). Once piped, flatted the top of the dough a bit.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Turn heat down to 365°F and bake another 20 minutes. 
  • Prepare the filling. Over medium speed, beat cream cheese until creamy. Add butter, powdered sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and mix. Add cool whip and mix in with a spatula. Refrigerate cream until ready to use.
  • Pipe cream into the bottom of the puffs or slice puffs in half and add cream and close, like a sandwich.
  • Dust cream puffs with powdered sugar. Enjoy.
