  • 1 cup(250 ml) water
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted margarine
  • 1/2 cup(125 g) sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) cornstarch
  • 3 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 400ºF(190ºC). Lightly grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

Step 7

To shape eclairs,shape the dough into narrow rectangles about 3½-inches(9 cm) long.

Step 8

Bake the puffs or eclairs in preheated oven for 10 minutes,then reduce heat to 350ºF(180ºC) and bake for additional 25 minutes or until the puffs are firm.
