Zac Posen's Pâte à Choux
1 Cup of Water
1 Stick of butter
1 Cup of Flour
4 Large Eggs
1 Teaspoon of Caster Sugar
Pinch of Salt
Vanilla Bean Extract
Pre-heat oven to 425F
In a medium pot bring water and butter, sugar, and salt to simmer on medium heat. Take off heat and add flour.
Whisk by hand. Once incorporated let it cool for 5 minutes. Add one egg at a time until ingredients are incorporated.
Spoon the dough into a piping bag or zip-lock bag and squeeze into small puffs about 2-inches apart. Press down points with water and give light egg wash.
For a more sweet pastry sprinkle with some caster sugar. Bake at 425F for 10 minutes, than 350F for 25 minutes.
