Scribbled Underline

1 cup water 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch cube 2 teaspoons granulated sugar ½ teaspoon kosher salt 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted 4 egg

Ingredients

White Scribbled Underline

Make the Pate a Choux (Choux Pastry): Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower-middle positions. 

– Place the water, butter, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Place over high heat and bring to a full rolling boil.

– Remove from the heat and add the flour all at once. Using a wooden spoon or stiff silicone spatula and stir until the flour is thoroughly mixed in and no lumps remain, pressing and smashing the dough against the sides of the pan.

Return the pot to medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the dough comes together into one mass and there is a dry film on the bottom and sides of the pan. 

Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes to cool the dough down. 

Add the eggs one at a time, ensuring each one is fully incorporated before adding the next.
