Simple Pate a Choux and Cheese Puffs

Pâte à Choux paht-ah-shoo! Sounds like sneeze, those fancy French words that I can’t ever get right! But so easy that it can be summed up with this ratio 1:1:1:1:1

1 cup water: 1 stick butter: 1 cup flour: 1 cup eggs: 1 pinch salt

And so easy that even *I* an oven-fearing, non-baker could master it on the very first try.

So easy that I’ve made these cute little babies 6 times in the past 6 days.

Now that’s easy. Or obsessive. Either way, you MUST make these — like TONIGHT! Or perhaps your holiday meal? I’ll be making Pâte à Choux for our Thanksgiving dinner! Actually, I’ll add gruyere cheese and make gougeres.  And if you try to make me pronounce gougeres, I can’t.
