1/4 Cup butter
1/2 Cup regular flour
2 Large eggs

Bring water and butter to a boil in a medium sized sauce pan. Add in flour and stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a 'ball' and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat source.
Add in eggs (all at once) and continue beating mixture until smooth.
Drop mixture - slightly less than ¼ cup - 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet
Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes (or until golden and puffed)

After pastry puffs are cool, slice off the tops and remove any doughy filaments that may be inside.
Puffs are now ready to fill.
