1 cup water
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 eggs
Almond Cream Filling (following)

About 3 hours before serving:
1. In a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, heat water, butter (or margarine), and salt until butter melts and mixture boils. Remove saucepan from heat. With wooden spoon, vigorously stir in flour all at once until mixture forms a ball and leaves side of saucepan.
2. Add eggs to flour mixture, one at a time, beating after each addition, until mixture is smooth and satiny. Cool mixture slightly.

4. Bake ring 40 minutes or until golden. Turn off oven; let ring remain in oven 15 minutes. Remove ring from oven; cool on wire rack.
5. When ring is cool, with long serrated knife, slice horizontally in half. Prepare Almond-Cream Filling; spoon into bottom of ring. Replace top of ring. Refrigerate.
6. Prepare Chocolate Glaze. Spoon over top of ring.
