  3. Add eggs , one at a time, and stir well after each addition. After adding the last egg, the dough should look shiny and elastic.

  4. Spoon mixture into pastry bag fitted with a large plain tip. Pipe eight 3-inch mounds, 4 on each cookie sheet, about 3 inches apart on parchment-lined cookie sheets.

  5. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through. Turn oven off and continue to let cream puffs dry for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
