You Will Need
- 1 c. water
- 3/4 stick butter
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 1/4 c. flour
- 4 large eggs
- 2 egg whites
- Parchment paper
- 11 x 17 sheet pan
- Piping bag with 1/2" tip
- Filling (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large saucepan, boil the water, butter, salt, and sugar together. Then, add the flour, and remove the mixture from the stove.
Work the mixture together and put it back on the stove on medium heat. Continue stirring until all the flour is fully blended in. Transfer the mixture into a bowl, and leave it to cool for about four minutes.
While stirring, add the eggs and egg whites, one at a time, making sure the each egg is completely mixed in before adding the next one.
Put the mixture into piping bag
Once all the eggs have been added and the mixture is smooth, put the dough into piping bag.
Line the sheet pan
Line the sheet pan with parchment paper.
Pipe the dough onto the parchment paper in golf-ball-size mounds, 2 inches apart, with a squiggle on top (like a large chocolate kiss).
Put the tray in the oven for 10 minutes. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes, or until the puffs are golden brown. If you like, pierce each puff and fill with your choice of yumminess: ice cream, whipped cream, or pastry cream!
