  1. Bring 11/2 cups water and butter to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and next 3 ingredients; cook, beating with a wooden spoon, until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball of dough. Remove from heat, and cool 5 minutes.

  3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheets.
