Cream Puff Cake

This is a BUNCO dessert from my good friend Amie. It's perfect for a party or a big crowd - it's a "square eclair".

1 cube butter
1 cup water
1 cup flour
6 eggs

Bring the water and butter to a boil Stir in flour and continue stirring until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Using an electric mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time. Spread this mixture onto the bottom of a large greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 14-18 minutes. Cool completely.

1 large pkg. + 1 small pkg. vanilla instant pudding mix (Make according to pkg. directions)
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 tsp. almond extract
Whipping cream (whipped and sweetened)

Mix the cream cheese with an electric mixer until it is smooth. Add the vanilla pudding a little at a time and mix until creamy (If you add the pudding all at once, the cream cheese will create big lumps). Whip in the almond extract. Spread this mixture over the cooled crust. Refrigerate.

Just before serving, top with whipping cream (can also use Cool Whip). Cut into squares, then drizzle with chocolate syrup or hot fudge just before serving.
