A question about a recipe: State Fair Cream Puffs

Food52_01-24-12-9856

I have a question about the recipe "State Fair Cream Puffs" from hardlikearmour. Has anyone ever tried mixing the dough in a Kitchen Aid instead of the food processor? I only have a mini food processor and there is no way the dough would fit in the bowl.

Hopefully hardlikearmour will see this and weigh in but I don't think this dough can be made using the KA, its a choux and although she used her food processor to beat in the eggs (great idea BTW) I always make choux by hand. I can't imagine making it in the stand mixer, you couldn't use the whisk or dough hook and I don't think the paddle would work so IMHO you could just beat the eggs in by hand. Maybe someone has successfully used the stand mixer and will weigh in.

I'm with sdebrango on this one. I'd mix the eggs in by hand instead -- once the flour, butter, water portion is done let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes then beat the eggs in one at a time with a wooden spoon. Each egg needs to be fully incorporated before adding the next. I'd probably add the white after adding at least one of the eggs.

I use my Kitchenaid for this all the time. Use the paddle attachment. It makes quick work of the eggs!

I've seen this done with the dough hook, though when I make choux, I usually do so by hand.

The paddle attachment on a stand mixer is the best way to mix in the eggs for pate a choux. Using a whip will contribute air to the choux which is not appropriate. A food processor could work provided you do a quick pulse for each egg and scrape well after each egg addition. By hand is the hard way, but certainly doable. It builds muscles!

Thats really good to know, I never thought a stand mixer would work.
