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

Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Your chouquettes are ready.

Stage 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

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.
