Not hard provided you allow the flour to cook a bit (1-2 mins) after you add it to the water/butter mix.Most flops are because the flour hasn't cooked out enough.

Thanks gardie.will have to try and make them some time.home made ones sure are nice.

Nutella makes a great icing for them. and it tastes good.

what a great idea juliewn. I used to make them by beating with a wooden spoon cause thats what my recipe said to do. now i do it with an electric beater, works perfectly.

Thanks Gardie. That was most likely the problem with my first attempt.

karenbnz, Jul 4, 12:16pm
