Moon Cake

Boil the following
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter

Add flour all at once and stir until it forms a ball
1 cup flour

Add the following one at a time and beat with a hand mixer after each addition
4 eggs

8 oz cream cheese (stir to remove lumps and gradually add pudding)
2 packages of instant vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cup milk (beat with electric hand mixer after adding milk

cool whip

chocolate topping

Method & Story;Spread on a 11 X 15 cookie sheet Bake 375 degrees for 30 minutes, don't open the oven door during baking. When cool add pudding and cream cheese mixture, top with cool whip, and drizzle chocolate over cool whip.
For years I used a recipe similar to this and dropped the dough into a cookie sheet. They were cream puffs as I would add vanilla pudding to the inside. Grandma Dean made the cream puff recipe easier by using a cookie sheet and spreading the dough out. I've made this if we have had unexpected company, as most of the ingredients are in the pantry/refrigerator. the down side of this dessert is that is doesn't keep long when it is assembled because the crust gets soggy, so I usually put the topping on-only the area that would be served right away.
