How to Make the Paste for Puffs and Eclairs?

18 Puffs or 10 Eclairs
  • 1 cup (250 ml) water
  • ½ (125 ml) butter or shortening
  • ½ teaspoon (2 ml) salt
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) sugar
  • 1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). In a saucepan, bring to a boil water, butter, salt and sugar. Remove from heat. Pour in flour all at once. With a wooden spatula, mix untill well-blended. Return to heat in order to dry paste. Mix constantly to avoid burning. Remove from heat. Transfer paste to a bowl. Let cool 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Fold in eggs once at a time, until paste is smooth and glossy.

Using a pastry bag with a medium-size fluted nozzle, squeeze 1-inch (2.5 cm) puffs or 4 x 1-inch (10 x 2.5 cm) ├ęclairs onto a buttered cookie sheet. Lightly brush with beaten egg. Do not let egg drip onto cookie sheet. Bake in oven 25-30 minutes. Let puffs cool fully before stuffing.

Stay tuned as you see How to Make Eclairs.
