    Heat to a rolling boil in a saucepan:
    1 c of water
    1/2 c of butter or margarine

    Stir in all at once
    1 c sifted flour

    Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture leaves the pan and forms into a ball (about one minute). Remove from heat.

    Beat in 1 at a time:
    4 eggs

    Beat mixture until smooth and velvety. Drop from spoon onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake until dry. Allow to cool slowly.

    Temp: 400*
    Time: Bake 45 to50 min.
    Amount: 8 large puffs

    Cut off tops with a sharp knife. Scoop out any filaments of soft dough. Fill with sweetened whip cream. BUT I JUST USE INSTANT PUDDING (lemon or vanilla). Replace tops. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve cold.
