Combine to a dough like consistency and roll out and refrigerate between sheets of baking/ silicone paper.
This is the topping we will put on top of the choux pastry and bake to get a pleasant crunchy crackly topping .
For the pate a choux ( fancy french for choux pastry)
200 g butter
300 g flour
500 ml water
9 eggs….simple formula 2-3-5-9….since the time I was a mere stripling.
Melt butter in water and when it comes to a boil , add flour and stir till comes away from the bottom of the pot. Take off the heat and allow to cool down slightly. Add in the eggs one at a time using a spoon or so.. don’t use a whisk keboz it will get stuck in the middle.
Then the paste can be baked , fried , or poached..
