Another Recipe

I've been delinquent and I haven't been keeping up with the Friday recipes! It's summer after all and there are Things to Do. So I'll share a recipe that I've made a couple of times since I had them at my china painting class. Dorothy brought them and gave us the recipe - she knew it by heart because she makes them all the time. Every time I've made them I've brought them somewhere so that we wouldn't eat them all ourselves. Really they're just small unfilled cream puffs with almond frosting on them but don't tell anyone.

Custard Buns

Bring to a boil 1 stick butter (1/2 cup), and 1 cup milk. Take it off the heat. Add 1 cup flour, mix well. Add 3 eggs one at a time, beating well after each one.

Drop by small spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet (about 20 globs).

Bake 10 minutes at 425° and then 25 minutes at 350°

Frost them with almond frosting made by mixing 1 cup powdered sugar, a little soft butter, milk and 1 tsp. almond flavoring.

Yummm. They remind me of Swedish Kringle in small individual pieces. I'll have to share that recipe with you another time.

Those do sound good! And as I was reading, I thought they sounded just like kringle (which I love). I wonder how similar your recipe is to mine.
