Chef’s tip

Choux must be well done to avoid they soften when filled with cream.
You can replace half the water with milk to get fluffier choux.
Do not open the oven when baking. When choux are golden brown, leave the oven door ajar and cool the choux at the same time the oven cools down. It will prevent your choux from falling back.
