1/2 teaspoon sugar

How To Make?
To make the choux pastry: Combine the water, milk, butter, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium-high heat to melt the butter and bring the mixture to a boil.
Remove the pan from the heat and add Extra White Gold AP flour all at once, stirring with a wooden spoon.
Return the pan to medium heat briefly, stirring until the mixture smooths out and starts to steam; this should take less than a minute. The batter will be very thick and shiny at this stage.
Remove the pan from the heat and let the thick batter cool, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes. It'll still feel hot, but you should be able to hold a finger in it for a few seconds; if you have a digital thermometer the temperature should be below 125°F.
Using the electric mixer or a large mixing bowl: Transfer the warm flour mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat in the eggs one at a time on medium speed, waiting until each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Beat for about a minute after adding the last egg.(You will probably need 4 eggs and a few tablespoons of the last fifth egg).
To bake with choux pastry: For cream puffs and profiteroles, use Wilton 1 A piping tip. Pipe 2-inch mounds about 3 inches apart. You could also use a zipped-top bag and cut off the corner for easy piping. Using a water moistened finger, smooth down the peaks and lightly brush each mound with egg wash.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before filling.
- Split open pastries and fill with cream, ice cream, Chantilly cream. You can also poke a hole in the pastries and pipe the filling inside. Cover and store leftover filled pastries in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Using a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract on medium-high speed until medium peaks form, about 3–4 minutes.
Medium peaks are between soft/loose peaks and stiff peaks, and are the perfect consistency for topping and piping on desserts.
