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.
