 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           Water
      1/2  cup           Butter or margarine
    1      cup           All-purpose flour
    4                    Eggs
    1      cup           Milk
      3/4  cup           Dairy sour cream
    1      package       Vanilla instant pudding
      1/4  teaspoon      Almond extract
   21      ounces        Cherry pie filling
 
 Heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat water and butter to boiling in one-quart
 saucepan; stir in flour. Stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball,
 about 1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Add eggs; beat until smooth. (Or
 place dough in small mixer bowl, add eggs and beat on low speed 2
 minutes). Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet to form
 8-inch ring. Smooth with spatula.
 Bake until puffed and golded, 50-60 minutes. Cool ring. Cut off top with
 sharp knife; pull out any soft dough. Beat milk, sour cream, dry pudding
 mix and extract in small mixer bowl on low speed until blended, about 1
 minute. Fill cream puff ring with pudding mixture; spoon 1/2 cup of the
 cherry pie filling onto pudding mixture.  Replace top of cream puff ring
 and spoon remaining cherry filling on top.
 Refrigerate until serving time.
 
  NOTE: TO form ring, place an 8-inch round layer pan on baking sheet and
 trace around it.
