Choux Pastry

Ingredients
  Water 1⁄4 Pint
  Margarine/Butter 1 Ounce
  Flour 3 Ounce (Plain / Self Raising)
  Whole eggs 2
  Egg yolk 1 Small
Directions

Put the water, margarine or butter and seasoning into a saucepan.
Heat gently until margarine or butter has melted.
Stir in the flour.
Return the pan to a low heat and cook very gently, but thoroughly, stirring all the time, until mixture is dry enough to form a ball, and leave the pan clean.
Once again remove from the heat and stir in the well beaten eggs very gradually.
Do this slowly to produce a perfectly smooth mixture.
Use for small buns or eclairs, which can then be filled with any savoury mixture.
Choux pastry for savouries should be kept to very tiny shapes.
