Step 1

In a heavy saucepan, combine water and butter and bring to a full boil.

Step 2

Reduce heat and add flour and salt all at once, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a smooth ball. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Add eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously after each, and continue beating until dough is smooth and shiny. Chill dough a few minutes in refrigerator.

Step 4

Drop by large spoonfuls on to lightly greased baking sheet, mounding each high in centre.

Step 5

Bake in 425°F oven for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F for 20 to 30 minutes longer or until well puffed, crisp and golden brown. Cool thoroughly on wire racks.

Step 6

Cut a thin slice from the top of each puff. Remove any moist filaments of dough inside.

Step 7

Fill with whipped cream and top with fruit. If desired, replace "lid" and dust lightly with icing sugar.
