  • PASTRY:
  • Heat the margarine in a saucepan, add the water and salt and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce heat and add the flour at once.
  • Stir the mixture constantly with a wooden spoon and continue until mixture leaves the sides of the pan and forms a ball.
  • This should take 6 minutes, then remove pan from heat and set aside to cool.
  • When cool, add the eggs and knead for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Using a pastry bag with a large nozzle or a serrated spoon, put 7-8 pastries in a pan containing the heated olive oil.
