  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 large LAND O LAKES® Eggs (yolks only)
  • 2 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine 1 cup half & half, sugar, salt, and vanilla bean in medium saucepan; mix well. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  • Place remaining 1/2 cup half & half, cornstarch, and egg yolks in bowl; whisk until combined.
  • Whisk small amount of hot milk mixture into egg yolk mixture. Pour egg yolk mixture back into remaining hot milk mixture. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
  • Pour mixture through a fine sieve into large bowl to strain. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter, stir until melted. Cover with plastic food wrap (pressing wrap onto surface of cream). Refrigerate until completely chilled.
  • Combine water, butter and salt in saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5-10 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Stir in flour vigorously until mixture forms ball. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time until smooth.
  • Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, about 3 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 30-35 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. Remove from oven. Pierce each puff gently with fork to allow steam to escape. Cool completely.
  • Beat whipping cream in chilled bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into chilled pastry cream.
  • Cut cream puffs in half horizontally. Layer bottom half with vanilla bean cream, fresh berries and ending with vanilla bean cream. Top with remaining half of cream puff.

Adding a small amount of hot milk mixture to eggs first prevents eggs from scrambling. If your eggs do scramble a little bit, running mixture through a sieve should eliminate any chunks.
