Puffs (Choux Pastry)



  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 eggs
  • (A dash of grated lemon zest would take away the fresh scent from the egg).


Step 1

In a saucepan, bring water to boil. Add butter to melt. Add the flour at once; stir over heat until the mixture forms a panada (a ball in the center of the pot). Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add one unbeaten egg at a time to the panada. Beat well until stiff.

Step 3

Drop on a greased cookie sheet 2” apart. Start oven at 450°F and bake for 15 minutes. Cool puffs then fill as desired. Puff are crisp when finished baking but softens later.

Step 4

Fill with cheese paste or any of your favourite fillings
