This is another old recipe my mother had in her large collection of recipe clippings.  This was from a Mrs. Owens who lived a block or two from my aunt at one time.  Let me state up front that I have never made or tasted this recipe.

1 cup water
2 tbs. butter
1 cup flour
3 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt

Bring water and butter to boil.  Remove from fire and add flour and salt.  Stir until mixture leaves sides of pan.  Cool; then beat in eggs one at a time.  Drop from spoon into deep fat and cook until puffed and golden brown.  Brain on paper towels.  When cool, split the sides, close top, and fill with whipped cream, custard, fresh or preserved fruit.
