I made a template to distribute the dough equally
I put it under the parchment paper and which I pull out before I put the tray in the oven
Pastry bag with a tip. I am using no 9. (Depends on the size of eclairs you are making)
These are the ingredients for the dough
Put water, (& milk) and butter on a cooking pot. Bring to a boil.
Away from fire add the flower, salt and sugar
You get a paste. Put back on the fire and cook for 2-3 mns. Add the 3 eggs lightly beaten. Mix vigorously until u get a lava style dough.
Use no 9 tip and a pastry bag. Form them and flatten them a bit
Bake 10 mins in a preheated oven 200C. Turn the tray around for uniform baking. Lower the oven to 175 C. And continue baking for another 20 mins.
