No. 1

The Ingredient Staples

A well stocked pantry & refrigerator is the first step to making sure baking will be effortless. Eggs play a vital role in making pâte à choux dough of quality. They help create the airy centers in the shells once baked that allow for fillings such as Vanilla Bean Creme Patisserie to be piped into them. Use only the freshest eggs & just know that it is customary to add or subtract one when preparing the dough. I’ll guide you through the procedure to help you look for valuable visual cues.

Standard all purpose flour may be used for most recipe formulas & salt will aide in taste. Many times sugar is added to formulas to help brown  the pastry & offer a smidgen of flavor. 

Only use high quality butter for the best flavor particularly since the ingredient list is small.

The Tools & Equipment

Pâte à choux includes only a few ingredients. Flour, a little salt, whole milk, water, butter & eggs are combined in specific order then they are blended using a paddle attachment & a heavy duty stand mixer until the proper consistency has been achieved. The dough may then be placed in a pastry bag & piped into a variety of shapes.

Look for traditional or disposable pastry bags from craft centers & baking specialty shops. Several small & large round tips may be used to pipe the choux paste & fill them. Star tips offer lovely texture to the shells once baked. 

Heavy duty half sheet pans are a staple to rely on time & time again for baking many pastries & breads. The thick bottoms ensure doughs brown properly & crusts crisp evenly. 

If piping consistent shapes is a trouble area, download & print template shapes that may be slipped under parchment paper on half sheet pans.

The Gift Essentials

Once baking is complete, you may wish to share your pastries with others. Bakery boxes make ideal packaging elements you can use to really make your hand crafted items shine for recipients. Pick them up from specialty cake shops, order them online or look to super centers & craft stores to locate them. Simple ribbon, string & gift tags make your baked goods look special. It’s your opportunity to show friends & family a bit of your personal style.
