They're just butter,water,flour, and eggs correct? Like, for all Choux pastries?Beignets are fried I know that, but the rest of the pastries are just straight up baked?
Pretty much (the recipe I used also called for a pinch of salt ¬_¬). You melt the water and butter together, add the flour then beat the eggs into the resulting dough to make a sort of batter. When it's baked the water evapourates and the bubble forms it into a hollow pastry as it hardens.
