- Whole milk - Butter - Flour - Salt - Eggs - Heavy whipping cream - Sugar
Line a baking sheet with parchment and pre heat oven at 390 F.
Bring the milk to a gentle boil and then turn off heat. Add the seeds from the vanilla sticks and cover with a lid. Let the milk infuse with vanilla flavors.
In a medium large pot add water, milk (the one without vanilla), butter and a pinch of salt and bring to a rolling boil. Turn the heat off and remove the pan.
Immediately add flour, gradually, and mix well with a whisk until well combined and no lumps left.
Allow the dough to cool a little then add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each egg is added until fully incorporated.
