Cream Puff Dough (panade)
Yield: 24 small or 14 large

1 cup water
4 T. sweet butter cut into pieces
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
4 large eggs

Place the water, butter, and salt in a heavy saucepan, bring to a
boil until the butter is melted. Remove from heat, add flour all
at once mix rapidly with a wooden spoon. Return the pot to a low
heat and "dry" for 5-6 min while mixing with a wooden spoon. When
ready dough should be soft and not stick to fingers when pinched.
Transfer the dough to the food processor allow to cool at least 5
minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, blending between each egg.
Dough will be smooth and shiny and heavy as mayonnaise when ready.

Coat a cookie sheet with butter and a sprinkle of flour. Using a
pastry bag, or a plastic bag with a hole cut in the bottom corner
or a tablespoon form the pastry into puffs the size of a golf ball
or into 3-4 inch oblong eclairs.

Brush tops with egg wash (1 whole egg beaten), pushing down the
tails on the puffs or dragging the tines of a fork to make a design
on top of the eclairs. Let the egg wash to dry for at least 20
minutes. Preheat the oven to 370 Bake 35 minutes shut off heat,
open oven halfway to allow the pastries to cool slowly for 1 hour.
Cut in half and fill.


16 oz (1 pint) whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 T. icing sugar

Whip the cream using a mixer or in the food processor, add the
vanilla and sugar just as the cream is setting.


3 oz of semi sweet chocolate melted in double boiler with 1-2 T of
water. Using a teaspoon top each pastry.

Notes: I use a food processor to blend in the eggs, but they can
be added by hand.

These are filled with whipped cream topped with chocolate, but they
could be filled with ice cream, jams, custards.
