  • 100 g butter ~ 8 tbsp
  • 130 g four 00 1 cup
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt

  • Pour the water into a saucepan; add the butter, sugar, and salt, and bring to boil.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the flour, stirring continuously avoiding lumps.
  • Place the pot back on low heat and stir vigorously slamming the mixture with a wooden spoon, until the dough combines and begins to come away from the sides of the pot (you will see a white film on the walls of the pot).
  • Add the eggs one by one to the cool mixture and mix well before adding the additional eggs, one at a time.
  • When the dough will become smooth and creamy, let it cool down.
  • Shape the dough into small balls using a teaspoon and dip them in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes until lightly browned on both sides.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • After chilling, fill with sweet cream you prefer, I used mascarpone cream for the Tiramisu`, click here for the recipe.
