Let's Talk a Little About Pate' A Choux
Pate a Choux is your dough for cream puffs, profiteroles, and eclairs. It starts out as a cooked mixture of milk, flour and butter. You have to cook the liquids out in this mixture so that the maximum amount of eggs can be incorporated. The more eggs you can add to this, without causing it to lose its shape, the lighter and more hollow your baked puff will be.
