  5. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, until the dough is smooth.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, creating small mounds.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry shells are golden brown and puffed.
  8. Allow the pastry shells to cool completely on a wire rack.

For the Cream Filling: 9. In a bowl, whip heavy cream until soft peaks form.

  1. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to whip until stiff peaks form.

Assembly: 11. Slice the cooled pastry shells in half horizontally.

  1. Spoon or pipe the cream filling into the bottom half of each shell.
  2. Place the top half of the shell over the cream, creating a sandwich.
  3. Optional: Dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with chocolate for an extra touch of decadence.
  4. Serve and savor the light and Tasty Cream Puffs!
