Choux pastry is also known as choux paste or pâte à choux.
It is a French pastry dough that is cooked twice: first over stovetop and then oven baked.
Choux pastry is also used to make savory recipe such as gougeres. A fresh gougere is slightly crunchy on the outside, yet soft on the inside. It should feel light in weight, like little pillows, when you pick them up. I highly recommend trying these black pepper gougeres.
