    In a sauce pan, combine water and butter and bring to a boil. Remove from heat & beat in the flour, a a little bit at a time until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until it forms a sticky (may be a bit runny) dough. Spread into a cake pan and smooth on bottom. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. It will appear golden & very puffy. If big bubbles form,DO NOT break or push them down!) Cool completely before filling.
