"Jasonr, fair point made. Here in the states, butter is sold in quarter-pound, separately-wrapped "sticks" within each box. Tis a colloquial term. In US measurements, a stick is 1/2 cup."

We have those too, but only Lantantia sells them. All the other brands I have seen either come in 1/2 pound or 1 pound blocks.

"WAIT A MINUTE! I used margarine instead of butter! Do you think THAT did it?"

OOPS.

Total OOPS! I can only claim that my brain is mush from a couple weeks of absolute stress.

I will try it the right way this time.

Woo...that was over a year ago. Chances are darned good I made them hockey pucks again. LOL. Actually, I don't think I made them again. I believe I will try them again this weekend though. Its Madeleine's birthday party on Saturday, this might be a fun little alternative to cake. She is not a big cake person.

Please use butter this time, Alix. May work mo' bettah. That's the way I've always made them, so I don't know if margarine is the culprit or not, but I swear these are pretty easy.

Now that I think of it, I probably haven't made them in a year, either.

I'm going to give them a go for Saturday's party. Will fill some with whipped cream and some with the pudding. I'll report back.

I think you would just put your flavouring in the whipped cream. Not sure though. I've never seen them in those flavours.

I used a cream puff recipe to make over 300 chicken salad filled puffs when my daughter got married. I froze the puffs before hand and filled them the day of the wedding. They were great. I still can't believe I made all the food for her reception. It would have cost a pretty penny, but was quite affordable with me doing all the work.
