Remove mixture from heat and beat in eggs, with wooden spoon, one at a time in order to keep batter smooth. Continue to beat with wooden spoon until smooth. To make a small bite-sized sandwich, use a smaller kitchen spoon like a typical table spoon for eating, to drop dough onto ungreased pan, placing dough 3-inches apart. (If a larger puff is desired, use a serving spoon for portioning the dough onto the ungreased pan. Making a larger puff will decrease the number of servings.)
