Choux pastry can be an intimidating task to take on, but once you have it mastered the possibilities are endless. This recipe makes a savory choux dough that is spinkled with parmesan cheese during the last five minutes of baking for an extra bit of flavor. Once baked, you can stuff these with a savory cream accented with fresh herbs or pair them with a meat and cheese combination for a savory little appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 120 milliliters water
  • 43 grams butter
  • salt
  • 67 grams flour
  • 120 milliliters egg (2 eggs plus 1 yolk)
  • parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the water and a pinch of salt. When it boils, add the flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon. The batter will become a ball. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat. Place in a bowl and use an electric mixer to mix until the batter is warm. Slowly add the egg. Keep beating to ribbon stage.
  4. Place the batter in a pastry bag with a smooth tip. Shape the choux in any desired way.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. When their color is slightly golden brown, reduce the oven temperature to 190 C. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese 5 minutes before removing from the oven. Bake until they are firm to the touch.

These aren't really buns, but actually little pastry puffs perfect for filling with fresh whipped cream. They taste like an eclair, and don't require fancy ingredients. They freeze very well. Just thaw them completely before you try to slice them open, because if you don't, they can split unevenly. They tend to attract beads of moisture in the refrigerator, which can make them soggy, so make sure they are sealed in an airtight container.
