Tasty Tuesday - Cream Puff Dessert

Another recipe out of the family recipes cookbook. I have yet to find someone that doesn't like it!! Tastes like a cream puff but so much less work!!

Cream Puff Dessert

1/2 cup margarine
1 cup water
1 cup flour
4 eggs

2 1/2 cups milk
6 oz pkg vanilla instant pudding (I used two 3.4 oz packages)
8 oz pkg cream cheese (I use low-fat)
8 oz tub cool whip (Low-fat as well)
Chocolate syrup, if desired
Sliced fresh strawberries, if desired

1.Bring margarine and water to a boil.
2. Add flour and mix well.

3. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time and beat after each.

4. Spread on greased jelly roll pan. (I used a 9x13 pan.)

5.Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. (I baked it for a tad longer because I used the 9x13 pan instead of a the jelly roll pan. I would watch it during the last 5-10 minutes to make sure it doesn't get too brown. Don't worry about "hills" or "valleys" that may form while it bakes.) Let the crust cool completely.

6. Mix milk, pudding and cream cheese together.
7. Spread over crust.
8. Spread slightly softened Cool Whip over top, and place sliced strawberries about 2 inches apart. Drizzle with chocolate syrup just before serving. (Not sure why I didn't take a picture of the end result...sorry!)
