1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 can peaches in syrup
Preheat oven to 450°F 15 minutes before baking.
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil and add 1/2 cup butter, stirring until melted. Gradually stir in 1 cup flour using a wooden spoon and stirring briskly until all flour is absorbed.
Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly and beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until mixture begins to lose its gloss.
Drop by large tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.
Place the puffs in the preheated 450°F oven and reduce temperature setting after 5 minutes to 350°F.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until puffed and cooked through. Centers will be hollow. Cool slowly or they may fall.
Using a sharp knife make a slit in the side of each puff and spoon in sweetened sliced peaches with a little syrup. Top with whipped cream.
For an extra treat, beat heavy whipped cream with a little almond oil or extract, or Amaretto or rum and a few tablespoons of confectioners sugar to flavor the whipped cream.
Variation: Use apricots instead of the peaches.
