Making the choux pastry

In a saucepan combine : water, milk, butter, salt and sugar

Cook over medium to high heat until it boils

Remove from the heat and add all the flour at once , mix well and place back over the medium heat, cook 1-2 minutes until it forms a smooth ball

Remove from the heat and place into a mixing bowl, allow to cool down 3-4 minutes

Beat all 4 eggs , save the other one , you’ll add it only if the final mixture is too thick

Start beating the dough on medium speed , slowly add the beaten eggs a little at a time

The dough will come apart and get smooth again after mixing for a few minutes

Final consistency should be smooth,and come off the spatula easy forming a ribbon

Add the final egg only if needed




At this point you can start preheating the oven to 400°F / 200°C degrees

Use a pastry bag with 1” cutout and pipe the dough onto a lined baking sheet

Make the eclair size to your preference ( usually it’s 5”-6” long, or smaller)

Bake 15 minutes at 400° F , then reduce the temperature to 325°F / 175° C and bake another 15-20 minutes

Don’t remove the baked pastry from the oven immediately ,open the oven door and allow to cool down 45-60 minutes

Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack to cool down completely
