Ingredients Nutrition


  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare 2 sheet pans with parchment.
  3. Boil water, butter, sugar and salt. While coming to a boil, prepare eggs.
  4. Add flour and remove from heat. Work mixture together and return to heat.
  5. Continue working the mixture until all flour is incorporated and dough forms a ball.
  6. Transfer mixture into bowl of a standing mixer and let cool for 3 or 4 minutes.
  7. With mixer on stir or lowest speed add eggs, 1 at a time, making sure the first egg is completely incorporated before continuing.
  8. Once all eggs have been added and the mixture is smooth, put dough into piping bag fitted with a round tip.
  9. Pipe immediately into golfball-size shapes, 2 inches apart onto parchment lined sheet pans.
  10. Cook for 30–35 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Once they are removed from the oven pierce each puff with a paring knife immediately to release steam.
  13. In large bowl, combine all ingredients except hot sauce and mix until well incorporated. Add hot sauce to taste. Chill. Fill piping bag and fill Pate a Choux puffs accordingly.
