Cream Puffs

I loved making these as a kid!  Fill them with pudding and yummy!

1/2 cup water
1/3 cup butter or margarin
1/2 cup flour
dash of salt
2 large eggs

Combine water and butter in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil  Add flour and salt, all at once, stirring vigorously over medium high heat until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball.  Remove from heat, and cool 4-5 minutes.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating with a wooden spoon after each addition; beat until batter is smooth.  Drop batter by slightly rounded teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.

Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.  Reduce temperature for 350 degrees and bake an additional 10 minutes.  Remove cream puffs from oven; pierce side of each with a small sharp knife.  Turn oven off.  Return cream puffs to oven, leaving door open, and let stand 10 minutes.  Remove from oven; cool  Cut open and put desired ingredient.  I love to put pudding in them!
