Classic Cream Puffs
The foundation of the perfect cream puff is light, airy pâte à choux, which is made with eggs, flour, and butter—there's no leavening other than eggs in this classic French dough. It's piped into circles to form the cream puffs. After baking, a small "x" is scored in the bottom of each cooled puff, then the pastry cream filling is piped inside.
