Cream Puff

Cream puff is one of my favorite food. But it was not cheap to buy. So, this morning I decided to bake them for myself. The ingredients are simple but the process is a little bit tedious.
3/4 cup of water
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
11/2 cups of all purpose flour
4 large eggs
1 egg for egg wash

Preheat the oven at 425 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a pot, heat on medium low water, butter and sugar until bubble.

Turn off the stove. Then sifted flour into the pot.
Using a wooden spoon, mix the batter.
Add one egg. Mix it well.
Then add another egg. Mix well.
The batter will be soft after all 4 eggs are incorporated into the batter.
Using a plastic bag, spoon the batter into the bag and cut a small opening at one corner. Pipe the batter into 1 inch size.
Brush the top with egg wash.
Bake at 425F for 10 minutes.
Change the temperature to 300F and cook for another 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve by piping butter cream into the cream puff or drizzle with some melted chocolate.
