But I decided to use recipe from my recipe book to practice it otherwise I got nice books and I just let them to dust in the corner of my bookcase And the result was really good.
Later when I compared to Mb. Ienas recipe, they were not so difference in terms of quantities of the ingredients etc. But I did follow her footstep in adding more corn flour as the custard filling was way too runny.
Makes easily 30 pcs
- 100 gr butter
- 250 ml water
- 150 gr flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 eggs (I used 3 large eggs)
- Preheat oven 200-210C, line cookie sheet with baking paper.
- Boiled the water with butter and salt until all butter has dissolved, low the fire. Add flour, mix well with wooden spoon.
- Wait for couple minutes until the batter is luke warm, add egg one by one while mixing it until smooth with either wooden spoon or electric mixer.
- Use piping bag and pastry tip (a Wilton 1M will do beautifully) to pipe the batter or use 2 spoons to shape. Give +/- 3 cm distance in between.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until its golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
(This is 1/2 recipe from the original recipe)
- 400 ml milk
- 100 gr sugar (I used 60 gr)
- 2 egg yolk
- 25 gr corn flour (I used 50 gr)

- 3 tbs rhum/brandy
- Dissolved corn flour with a little bit of milk, set aside. Mix egg yolk with little bit of milk, set aside.
