1. In a 2- to 3-quart pan over high heat, stir 1 cup water, 1/2 cup butter, and sugar until butter is melted and mixture boils, about 3 minutes.
2. Add flour, remove from heat, and stir until dough holds together. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating vigorously after each addition until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Spoon dough in 2-teaspoon portions 1 inch apart on 2 buttered baking sheets, each 12 by 15 inches.
4. Bake in a 375° oven until puffs are well browned and firm to touch, 25 to
30 minutes; switch pans halfway through baking.
5. Cut an X-shaped slit in the bottom of each puff and set on racks to cool.
