In France, Kids are crazy about chouquettes! They love eat them for the breakfast, but also for a middle afternoon snack!

Choux pastry 

For about 20 choux or 8 éclairs

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp (5cl) milk 
  • 4 Tbsp (7cl) water
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp sugar (5 g)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Melt milk, water, salt, sugar and butter in a saucepan.
  3. When the mixture begins to boil, stop the heat and add the flour out of the fire. Mix well to obtain a smooth dough. Put again on low heat 1 or 2 minutes to slowly dry the dough.
  4. Out of the fire, add the eggs, one by one, while mixing well: you will obtain a smooth dough.
