How to cook

Choux pastry:

  • To make the choux pastry, mix butter, water and milk in a sauce pot. Set to simmer.
  • Add flour, sugar and salt to the simmering mix. Stir consistently with a wooden spoon.
  • After the flour forms into a dough ball, mash it hard with the wooden spoon for 4-6 mins. Allow to cool for 5 mins.
  • Add eggs to the dough, one at a time. Mix and stir well until fully incorporated, before adding in the next egg.
  • Once all the eggs have been added and the dough looks shiny, transfer it into a piping bag.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and pipe small mounds of choux pastry about 1.5 inches in diameter.
  • Pipe them at least 2 inches apart as they will swell up to twice their size!
  • Bake in oven for 15-20 mins until they have puffed up.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 170°C and then finish baking for another 10-15 mins until golden brown.
  • Refrain from opening the oven too many times.

Truffle Cream Cheese:

  • Combine butter, cream cheese, parmesan, spring onions, garlic and truffle oil/truffle slices.
  • Slice open the choux pastry and fill it with the cream cheese mixture.
  • Serve with a generous grating of aged gouda on top of each serving.
