- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 large eggsFor the Zabaione Filling:
- 6 large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup Marsala wine
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaksInstructions:
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a saucepan, bring the water, butter, and salt to a boil. Add the flour and stir vigorously until the mixture forms a smooth ball of dough.
- Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and let it cool for a few minutes. Then, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, until the dough is smooth and glossy.
- Spoon the dough into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe mounds of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each mound for expansion.
- Bake the cream puffs for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and continue baking for an additional 20 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
- To make the zabaione filling, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Gradually whisk in the Marsala wine and continue to whisk the mixture until it thickens and becomes pale and creamy.
- Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Let the zabaione cool to room temperature.
- Gently fold the whipped cream into the cooled zabaione until well combined.
- Slice the cream puffs in half horizontally and fill each with a generous spoonful of the zabaione cream.
- Dust the filled cream puffs with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
