Step by step recipe

Stage 1
43 min.
Chouquettes : Photo of step #1 Prepare 450 g Choux pastry (pâte à choux), but add 3 times the sugar of the original recipe.
Stage 2
10 min.
Chouquettes : Photo of step #2 Make small regular heaps with the choux pastry on a baking sheet, about the size of a Euro or pound coin (1.5 cm or half an inch).
Stage 3
Chouquettes : Photo of step #3 As always with this sort of work, you'll find a forcing bag very useful.

If you don't have one, use 2 teaspoons: one to scoop up the mixture from the pan, the other to push it out.
Stage 4
2 min.
Chouquettes : Photo of step #4 Glaze the tops of the heaps.
Stage 5
5 min.
Chouquettes : Photo of step #5 Throw 30 g Pearl sugar onto the heaps with a short sharp gesture which will help the crystals stick to the beaten egg.

Finish with a dusting of caster sugar, or granulated sugar if you have some.
Stage 6
25 min.
Chouquettes : Photo of step #6 Put in the oven immediately at 210°C (420°F) for about 25 minutes. Watch the colouration carefully, and turn the sheet back to front if the cooking is not even.
Stage 7
Chouquettes : Photo of step #7 Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Your chouquettes are ready.
Stage 8
Chouquettes : Photo of step #8 Here's a variation for the summer: cut the cold chouquettes in half horizontally with a serrated knife.
Stage 9
Chouquettes : Photo of step #9 Wash 100 g strawberries, remove the stalks and cut into small dice. Mix with 4 tablespoons Chantilly cream.
Stage 10
Chouquettes : Photo of step #10 Fill the chouquette halves and replace the tops.

Remarks

Please note, chouquettes do not keep well. You can keep them in an airtight tin for just a day or two, but after this they tend to dry out. If filled with cream they keep even less well, just a few hours in the fridge.
