Instructions
  1. Dice butter. Add water and diced butter in a little saucepan and bring to a boil. Quickly remove from heat and add all flour in one time. Then mix really quickly until you obtain a ball not gripping. Heat again with really low heat for a few seconds.

  5. Do the same with the other eggs, one by one. Be careful to not have a paste too liquid because then the chouquettes will not rise.
  6. When your choux paste is ready, preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F) and place a greaseproof on a baking tray. Fill in your pastry bag with the choux paste and make your choux.

  12. Remember: If you want to conserve the chouquettes, you have to put them in an airtight box.
