  Cream puff paste 1 Cup (16 tbs) (1/2 Recipe, Basic Variety)
  Strawberries 1 Pint (2 Cups)
  Granulated sugar 4 Tablespoon
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Almond extract 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  10x confectioner's powdered sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

1. Make Basic Cream-Puff Paste.
2. Drop paste by rounded table-spoonfuls in 6 even mounds, 2 inches apart, onto a large cookie sheet.
3. Bake in hot oven (400°) 40 minutes, or until puffed and golden-brown. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.
4. Make filling: Wash strawberries; set aside 6 for garnish. Hull remaining berries; slice into a medium-size bowl; stir in 3 tablespoons of the granulated sugar. Chill at least 30 minutes.
5. Beat cream with remaining tablespoon granulated sugar and the almond extract until stiff in a medium-size bowl. Chill.
6. Just before serving, cut a slice from top of each puff; remove any filaments of soft dough. Fold sliced berries into cream, spoon about 1/3 cup into each puff; replace tops. Sieve 10X sugar over top. Arrange on a serving plate and garnish with strawberries and mint leaves, if you wish.
