 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           water
      1/2  cup           butter or margarine
    1      cup           all-purpose flour
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    4                    eggs
    1      package       cook and serve vanilla pudding mix
    1 1/2  cups          milk
    1      cup           whipping cream -- whipped
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    2      10 ounce      frozen strawberries, thawed --  
                         or 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
                         confectioner’s sugar
 In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water and butter to a 
 boil. Add flour and  salt all at once; stir until a smooth  
 ball forms. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Add eggs,
 one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until 
 smooth. Cover a baking sheet with foil; grease foil. Trace a
 12 heart onto foil. Drop batter by rounded Tablespoonfuls  
 along the outside of the heart (mound should be almost      
 touching). Bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until   
 golden. Lift foil and transfer to a wire rack. Immediately  
 cut a slit in each puff to allow steam to escape; cool. In a
 saucepan, cook pudding mix and milk according to package    
 directions. Cool. Fold in cream and vanilla. Place cream    
 puffs on a serving plate; split puffs and remove soft dough 
 from inside. Spoon filling into puffs; add strawberries.    
 replace tops; dust with confectioner’s sugar. Chill until
