Choux

Choux (pronounced "shoo") are puff shells made from a thick batter (pate a choux) of butter, flour, eggs, milk and water. The mixture is cooked on the stovetop, then fashioned into a variety of shapes and sizes and slipped into a hot oven to bake. The moist interior and crisp shells are ideal for savory or sweet fillings. Small puffs are often used to make a dessert known as profiteroles (see related recipe at right).Store the shells in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day, or make them ahead and freeze for up to 1 month.

Perfect Profiteroles
February 28, 2014
My husband loves profiteroles, so I looked up this recipe to make them at home. I was surprised with how easy the recipe was! Making the dough itself is a bit of a workout and at first it might look like the eggs won't be incorporated properly, but keep beating it! It will happen!
These puffs are better when used the same day (within an hour or two actually) of being baked. I have found that they loose their airiness and get chewy as time goes by.
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
