Step 2: Start heating up a pot with the milk. Split the vanilla pod in half and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and pod into the milk and scald (until small bubbles appear around the edges). Turn off heat, discard the vanilla pod, and pour into the egg mixture.

Step 3: Stir the egg mixture over medium-low heat until it comes to a boil. Continue to cook and stir for another minute, until the cream is thick. Turn off the heat. Cover with wrap and refrigerate.

Step 6: Drop by a big spoonful onto ungreased parchment paper. Leave at least 1 inch of space between each one. Don’t make the paste too flat, or your puffs will turn out flat too. Try shaping them into a round shape. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes then raise the temp to 425 degrees F and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes.
