Ingredients for 10 to 12 pieces:

200 ml water
100 g farmer's butter
150 g spelt flour

1 tsp sugar
1 pinch salt
4 eggs



250 ml whipped cream
icing sugar for sprinkling


In a pot, slowly bring water with salt, butter and sugar to the boil. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the sifted spelt flour very quickly with a wooden spoon. Stir until the dough separates from the pot. Allow to cool.

Preheat the oven to 225 °C (no circulating air!). Put the cooled pastry into a mixing bowl. Using a mixer, gradually beat the eggs into the dough.

Fill the dough into a piping bag with a large nozzle and pipe small heaps of dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving a little space between them. Bake in the oven at 225 °C for 15 minutes, then at 180 °C for another 10 minutes. When the Tauernwindbeutel are ready, leave them in the oven for another 10 minutes. Clamp a cooking spoon between the oven and the oven door so that it remains open a little. Then remove the cream puffs and leave to cool on a cooling rack. Whip the cream until stiff. Cut the cream puffs in half and fill with the whipped cream. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.
