Ingredients
  

  • 2 ounces butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup water scant
  • 1/2 cup flour heaped
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sugar optional

Instructions
 

  • Chop butter, melt in water and just bring to boiling. Immediately add flour, and mix well with wooden spoon, until it forms a dough that leaves the side of the pan (it looks really gross and clumpy at first, but as you keep stirring it fixes itself). Remove from heat and cool 2 minutes.
  • For a sweet pastry, add the sugar to the beaten eggs. Stir in the eggs, mixing until it look like dough again (this is gross at first too).
  • Now you have many choices: using a pastry bag or spoon, shape the dough as desired.
  • Bake at 230C until it looks crisp and golden, about 30 mins for small sized puffs.
  • Cut in half, or cut a slit in the side to let the steam escape- if you don't do this fairly quickly they get soggy inside.
