"Primitive Prairie Church Dolls Roll"!


These delightful cream puff bunnies will make young and old smile. They taste great too!


Cream Puffs

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 eggs


1 (3.3-ounce) package white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix

1 1/4 cups cold milk

1 cup whipping cream, whipped


Large marshmallows

Decorator sugar Toothpicks

Vanilla-flavored candy-coating (almond bark), melted

Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Black string licorice, cut into thin 3/4-inch strips

Small round pink candies, such as mini candy-covered chocolate pieces

Powdered sugar, if desired


Heat oven to 400°F. Combine water and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil (4 to 7 minutes). Reduce heat to low; stir in flour vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time until mixture is smooth.

Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Pierce each puff gently with fork to allow steam to escape. Cool completely. Prepare pudding mix, using 1 1/4 cups milk, as directed on package. After pudding is set, gently stir in whipped cream. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

To create bunnies, cut off cream puff tops. Cut large marshmallows crosswise into 3 pieces. Dip cut-sides into decorator sugar for ears. Using toothpicks, attach sugared marshmallows into top of cream puff for ears. Use melted candy coating to attach chocolate chips for eyes. Just before serving, fill bottom half of cream puff with 1/3 cup filling. Press licorice strips for whiskers and pink candies for nose into filling. Place decorated cream puff top over filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Thanks Sue for the recipe and for another month of giveaways. Love the church doll roll. I know its for looks, but my 3 year old granddaughter would love it in church. We go shopping and she says Nana is this a primitive store? We bought a book for her yesterday and several pages in it looked old and she commented it looked like a primitive book. She already knows what to look for. Please enter me into your giveaway.

Like the church dolls, would love to enter drawing for them but would be better to go to someone with a daughter or grand-daughter that could enjoy them more.
The creme puff bunnies are absolutely adorable. I would feel guilty eating them. They sound pretty simple overall, I will have to make some before easter. Thanks for the recipe.

The first time I made cream puffs was in Home Ec., junior in high school. My family loved them. I am going to use your recipe tomorrow to make these cuties for my grandchildren--and my hubby. He has the biggest sweet tooth of them all!
