Cream Puff in a Pan

With my mother's permission I am posting one her most requested desserts!

Cream Puff in a pan
1 c. water
1/2 c. butter (real)
1 c. flour
6 eggs
2 small boxes or 1 large box of you favorite pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
8 oz. cream cheese
1 container of cool whip
*Chocolate syrup - optional
*crushed walnuts or pecans - optional

In a small kettle bring water and butter to a boil. Once boiling remove from the burner and add flour. Stirring rapidly the mixture will fall away from the sides of your kettle. Beat eggs in, one at a time. Once mixed well spread into a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. When removed from the oven you will find a crust with many "hills/bubbles" etc. This is normal. Cool completely.

Mix together pudding, milk, and cream cheese. Spread over top of the cooled crust. Refrigerate until set. Top with a layer of cool whip. To dress them up a bit, we drizzle chocolate syrup on the cool whip and sprinkle with crushed walnuts or pecans.

Store covered in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
