  1. 1/3 cup water
    1/3 cup butter
    1/2 cup flour
    2 eggs

    8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup milk
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp curry powder
    1 1/2 cups cooked chicken
    1/3 cup slivered almonds
    1 green onion, chopped

    In a large saucepan, bring water, butter and a dash of salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.

    Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake 425F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack and immediately split puffs open; remove tops and set aside.

    In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, milk, salt, curry powder and pepper until smooth. Add chicken, almonds and onion. Spoon into puffs; replace tops.

    Yield: 2 dozen

    These savory bites have such a nice mixture of lightness and crunch. I’ve served them at cocktail parties and they were a big hit.

    Footnote: I filled the puffs with nutella for an easy dessert at the lake this summer!
