Hello friends….. Happy New Year to All… Wish you all a great year ahead !!!!!!!!!!! I know I am late.. But better late than never… right ?? JJJ So how are your new year resolutions going on? One of my resolutions is to peek into my friend’s blogs, and of course mine too, atleast once in a fortnight. Hope I can keep it for the whole of 2011 and later too.
All purpose flour -- ¾ cup
Salt -- ¼ tsp
Grated nutmeg -- a pinch
Unsalted butter -- 6 tbsp
Eggs -- 3
Semi sweet chocolates -- ½ cup
Vanilla ice cream -- 4 cups
Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease and prepare a baking sheet.
Sift together the flour , salt and nutmeg. In a medium sauce pan, add the butter and ¾ cup water and bring to boil.
Remove from the heat and add the dry ingredients. Mix well with a wooden spoon for about a minute , until well blended and the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Now keep the pan over low heat and cook the mixture for about a couple of minutes stirring constantly.
Remove from the heat. Add the eggs, one at a time to the flour mixture, beating well, until the dough is smooth and shiny.
Pipe the dough onto a baking sheet. You can also drop the dough onto the baking sheet, using a tablespoon. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the pastry is well risen and browned .Turn off the oven and the let the puffs cool with the oven door open.
Split the Profiteroles in half and put a small scoop of ice cream in each. Serve with melted chocolate.
