This recipe was given to me by my sister, Karen. It is one of those simple recipes people rave about and beg for.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring water and butter to a boil in medium saucepan. Add flour stir with wooden spoon until it forms a sticky ball. Remove from heat beat in eggs one at a time with electric mixer, this will make your pastry. Spoon egg/flour mixture onto a pizza pan/cookie sheet in a ring (like an"O"). Bake at 400 for at least 45-50 minutes. Do not underbake. It should be a deep golden brown. Cool. Split top from bottom half. Beat heavy cream with vanilla and powdered sugar until soft peaks form.
  2. Add 1/2 box instant vanilla pudding. Filling should be somewhat stiff. Spoon into bottom of ring and replace top. Soften fudge topping in microwave checking every 10- 15 seconds until soft but not liquid. Frost ring with fudge sauce refrigerate.
