Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • CRAB FILLING:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) imitation crabmeat, shredded

Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring water, butter and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until smooth and shiny.
  2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 3 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Immediately split puffs open; remove and discard soft dough from inside. Cool puffs completely.
  3. For filling, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, salt, dill, lemon juice and pepper in a bowl. Fold in the crab. Fill bottom halves of puffs; replace tops. Serve immediately.
