puffs

1/2
cup water
1/4
cup butter or margarine
1/2
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 1/2
teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2
eggs
1 1/2
cups deli chicken salad
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. In 2-quart saucepan, heat water and butter to rolling boil. Stir in flour and thyme; reduce heat to low. Stir vigorously about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth after each addition.
  2. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet away from draft, about 30 minutes.
  4. Cut off top one-third of each puff and pull out any filaments of soft dough. Fill each puff with 1 rounded tablespoon chicken salad.

Add a "thyme-ly" garnish with sprigs of fresh thyme, of course!
Do-Ahead
Freeze baked puffs for up to 2 months. Thawing at room temperature for 30 minutes is all that's needed before cutting and filling.
How-To
