  Icing sugar 45 Milliliter (3 Tablespoon)
Directions

–  Preheat oven to 325 °F (160 °C).
–  Bring water and butter to a boil, then reduce heat to low and add flour, stirring gently for 1 minute until the batter forms a ball. Remove from heat.
–  Add eggs, one by one, beating each time until the mixture softens.
–  On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop large spoonfuls of batter measuring 1/4 cup (60 ml), keeping them 3 inches (7 cm) apart.
–  Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puff shells are golden. Cool, keeping the shells out of drafts.
