|1 hour||25 min.||1 hour 25 min.|
|1||Prepare 450 g Choux pastry (pâte à choux), but add 3 times the sugar of the original recipe.||43 min.|
|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).||10 min.|
|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.
|4||Glaze the tops of the heaps.||2 min.|
|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.
|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.||25 min.|
|7||Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Your chouquettes are ready.
|8||Here's a variation for the summer: cut the cold chouquettes in half horizontally with a serrated knife.|
|9||Wash 100 g strawberries, remove the stalks and cut into small dice. Mix with 4 tablespoons Chantilly cream.|
|10||Fill the chouquette halves and replace the tops.|
