Make the Cooked Dough
  1. Melt Butter: Put softened butter in a saucepan, add milk, water, and salt. Cook over low heat until the butter melts. Continue cooking for another 10 seconds, then add plain flour. Stir quickly and return to the stove, cooking for 1 minute while stirring constantly.
  2. Cool and Mix: Transfer the cooked dough to a bowl and let it cool for about 1 minute. Gradually add the beaten eggs at room temperature, mixing well.
Assemble and Bake
  1. Pipe the Dough: Put the resulting dough in a decorating bag. Sprinkle the bottom of a glass on the baking sheet with flour to mark where the puffs will go. Place the frozen rounds of dough on the marked spots.
  2. Bake: Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 340°F (170°C) and bake for another 15 minutes until golden and crispy. Open the oven door slightly and let them cool for 10 minutes before removing and cutting them in half.
Make the Cream
  1. Prepare Custard: In a bowl, mix egg yolks with sugar, then add cornstarch, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix well and cook over low heat until thickened.
  2. Cool Custard: Pour the custard onto a tray, cover with foil, and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Whip Cream: In another bowl, whip the whipping cream with sugar until soft peaks form. Gradually add the chilled custard cream while whipping until fluffy.
Fill and Chill
  1. Fill Puffs: Put the cream into a decorating bag and fill the puffs through a small hole at the bottom.
  2. Chill: Place the filled puffs in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving.
