In honor of cream puff day I decided to whip up a quick batch of my own this evening. Once you’ve got choux paste mastered they are really quite easy.
1 splash Vanilla extract
60gms All purpose flour
1. Boil butter, water, sugar, and vanilla
2. Stir in salt & flour, remove from heat and continue to stir until the dough is warm to the touch.
3. Add eggs and stir vigorously until a smooth, sticky paste forms.
Scoop by heaping tablespoon fulls onto a parchment paper lined sheet pan, pop into a pre-heated 210C oven for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven immediately, pierce the choux paste shells with a toothpick, and allow to cool completely. (about 20 minutes)
Fill with your favorite whipped cream/custard/chocolate/jam or combination and enjoy! We sure did tonight!
