Classic Choux Au Craquelin – Cream Puff Recipe

Choux is a light pastry which is twice cooked and is made only with butter, flour, eggs, and water. Yes, it doesn’t use any raising agent like baking powder. Instead, the high moisture content helps to create steam during the cooking process, which puffs up these pastries.

Craquelin – Well, the literal meaning of craquelin is “cracker”, but when referring to french pastry, Craquelin is a sweet and crunchy cookie topping that is added on top of choux pastries to give it a distinct sweet and crunchy texture.
