Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
1/4 cup water

6 tablespoons butter

1 cup flour

1 tablespoon sugar

3 eggs, beaten

4 tablespoons butter

4 oz cream cheese

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

2 tablespoons chives, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

loaf of white bread


  • Melt the butter and water in a saucepan and continue until it comes to a boil. Stir in the 1 cup of flour.
  • Remove from heat and mix in the sugar. Allow to cool slightly. Temper the eggs and little by little add the eggs into the hot flour mixture.
  • Stir constantly so the eggs do not cook! Once all the eggs are incorporated and a homogenous mixture is formed, drop by tablespoon full onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and split each puff open while still hot, return to an off oven for a couple of minutes to dry the center out. Allow to cool completely.
  • Combine butter, cream cheese, parsley and chives in a food processor and "blend" until green. Salt and pepper to desired taste.
  • Spread and even layer on 1- slices of bread and cover with the remaining slices. Cut off crusts and cut into fancy triangles. Makes about 32-36 triangles.
