DUCK FAT PROFITEROLES

Ingredients - Purchase Foie Gras Mousse - Purchase Rendered Duck Fat
Water ½ cup
Rendered Duck Fat 3 tbsp
Salt ¼ tsp
All-purpose flour ½ cup
Whole Eggs 2
Nutmeg Pinch

Method
PLACE WATER, DUCK FAT, SALT IN A MEDIUM SIZE POT AND BRING TO A BOIL ON THE STOVE. LOWER THE HEAT, ADD THE FLOUR AND STIR WITH A WOODEN SPOON UNTIL COMPLETELY INCORPORATED AND THE DOUGH IS COMING AWAY FROM THE SIDE OF THE POT. CUT THE HEAT AND ALLOW TO COOL.

ADD THE NUTMEG, THEN MIX IN THE EGGS ONE AT A TIME. DO NOT ADD THE NEXT EGG UNTIL THE PREVIOUS IS FULLY INCORPORATED. YOU CAN DO THIS BY HAND OR WITH A STAND MIXER EQUIPPED WITH THE PADDLE ATTACHMENT. SPOON THE BATTER INTO A PIPING BAG FITTED WITH A STAR TIP.

LINE A BAKING SHEET WITH PARCHMENT PAPER OR USE A NON-STICK TRAY PIPE OUT 1” DIAMETER CIRCLES A MINIMUM OF AN INCH APART AS THEY WILL EXPAND WHILE BAKING. WET YOUR FINGER AND SMOOTH OUT ANY PEAKS FROM PIPING TO AVOID BURNT TIPS.
