1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup boiling water
1 cup sifted enriched flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Melt butter in boiling water. Add flour and salt all at once, stir vigorously. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture forms a ball that doesn't separate. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously after each until smooth.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoon three inches apart on greased cookie sheet.
Bake in a very hot oven (450-degrees) fifteen minutes, then in a slow oven (325-degrees) twenty-five minutes. Remove from oven; split. Turn oven off and put puffs back int to dry out about twenty minutes. Cool on rack.
