  • 2 cups water
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 8 eggs
15 mins

1 hr
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • Boil water and butter in a small sauce pan. Add flour and stir briskly over low flame until a ball forms.
  • Remove mixture from heat and beat in eggs, with wooden spoon, one at a time in order to keep batter smooth. Continue to beat with wooden spoon until smooth.
  • If making dessert puff pastry or a small bite-sized sandwich, use a smaller kitchen spoon, like a typical table spoon, to drop dough onto ungreased pan, placing dough 3-inches apart (if a larger puff is desired, use a serving spoon for portioning the dough onto the ungreased pan).
  • Bake 40 to 45 minutes until lightly browned. As the crust browns, the inside opens up (Undercooking results in a sticky inner dough and a less open texture).
  • Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
