Servings: 8 People


  • Stand Mixer

  • 165 gr Strong Flour (W325, or 11%-12% of proteins)

  • Bring water, salt, and butter to a boil until butter is completely melted.
  • Add the flour and cook for about 2min while stirring.
  • Pour the dough into the stand mixer bowl and turn a few seconds to lower the temperature.
  • Start adding the eggs slowly at medium speed, taking care to allow each addition to be absorbed before going on.
  • When the mixture will have the right consistency (making it fall with the spatula, it forms a triangle)
  • Lightly butter a baking sheet. Using a pastry bag, shape into small walnuts and lightly crush the tips with a wet finger to make sure they grow evenly when baking.
