French Chouquettes
makes 40 chouquettes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 stick of butter (113g)
  • 1¼ cup flour (150g)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium nonstick saucepan, melt butter in water. Bring to a boil. In the meantime, mix together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  2. As soon as water/butter mixture boils, remove from the burner and dump in your flour mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine. You will get a puffy ball of dough that comes off the sides of your saucepan easily. Let it cool to a little warmer than room temperature.
  3. Add 1 egg and stir to combine. Wait until the egg is completely incorporated before adding the next egg. Repeat.
  4. Using 2 spoons, an ice cream scoop or a piping bag, dump little balls of dough (about ¾" wide) onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover each ball with sugar. Bake for 15 minutes.
