What is Choux pastry?


Choux pastry is a French specialty used for cream buns, chocolate eclairs and profiteroles. This pastry has a large cavity which is filled with flavoured cream or custard. The dough is made with flour, butter, eggs, sugar and water. The butter is obtained cooking a mixture of milk, water, flour and eggs and then put in a piping bag where it will be used to form the round circles on a baking tray. During the baking process, the dough will rise to form this empty shells. When cool, the pastry is then filled with the desired filling.
