Choux pastry is usually baked but for beignets it is fried. In Spain and Latin America, churros are made of fried choux pastry, sugared and dipped in a thin chocolate blancmange for breakfast. In Austrian cuisine, it is also boiled to make Marillenknödel, a sweet apricot dumpling; in that case it does not puff, but remains relatively dense. They are sometimes filled with cream and used to make cream puffs or éclairs. profiterolecream puff (US) or choux à la crème is a choux pastry ball filled with whipped creampastry cream, or (particularly in the US) ice cream.

For a low-fat version, I realized that it is possible! Nonna Marcella (Giulia's grandma) has shared such a recipe! It is an Italian family recipe, takes 15 minutes to prepare, and 25 minutes to cook it. The main ingredients for the choux pastries are extra virgin olive oil, water, flour and eggs!
