Chouquette-French Pastry Balls

Chouquette is a small pastry balls prepared with plain flour, eggs and butter..These chouquettes are always topped with sugar pearls and we get them very easily in French bakeries for very less price, thats the reason i never tried them making at home, since am hosting french theme as this month's AWED, i wanted to try these cute looking pastry balls for the first time at home, for my surprise they turned out super prefect as exactly as we get from bakeries and we enjoyed having them when they were still warm, eventhough these chouquettes goes for little bit more butter, its not that much harm to try and enjoy them once in a while at home..Sending these cuties to AWED-French guest hosted by me, event by DK..

Chouquette

1/3cup Milk
1/2cup Water
3/4cup All purpose flour
100grms Butter
1/2tsp Salt
4nos Eggs (beatened)
1no Egg yolk
Sugar pearls

Preheat the oven to 350F, add the water, milk,sugar, butter in a pan and bring them boil in medium flame; once the butter gets melts, take the pan from the flame and add immediately the flour,mix well and cook in simmer again until the dough get stiff..

Transfer this dough to a large bowl, add the beatened eggs one by one until the dough turns like puree but slightly stiff, now fill this dough in a pastry bag and pipe out small quantity of this dough over a baking sheet lined in a baking tray, slightly brush the chouquette with beatened egg yolk, springle sugar pearl and bake them in middle rack for 20minutes..

Enjoy with a cup of coffee..
