Choux Pastry rich in Butter - Recipe by I.Massari

Here is a recipe for very crispy, honeycombed Choux Pastry Puffs. The higher quantity of butter results in a crumblier crust, although it makes the recipe a bit more tricky to execute!
Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
RECIPE FOR: 8 People


  • Stand Mixer
  • Baking Sheet
  • Pastry Bag


  • 250 gr Water
  • 325 gr Butter
  • 165 gr Strong Flour (W325, or 11%-12% of proteins)
  • 375 gr Eggs
  • 5 gr Salt


  • Bring water, salt, and butter to a boil until butter is completely melted.
  • Add the flour and cook for about 2min while stirring.
  • Pour the dough into the stand mixer bowl and turn a few seconds to lower the temperature.
  • Start adding the eggs slowly at medium speed, taking care to allow each addition to be absorbed before going on.
  • When the mixture will have the right consistency (making it fall with the spatula, it forms a triangle)
  • Lightly butter a baking sheet. Using a pastry bag, shape into small walnuts and lightly crush the tips with a wet finger to make sure they grow evenly when baking.
  • Bake in a hot oven at 220°C (428°F) for the first 10 minutes. Lower the temperature to 190°C (374°F) and bake for another 15 minutes.

2 comments about “Bignè Ricco, la ricetta di Iginio Massari”

    1. Ciao Anna,
      per questa ricetta con un’elevata quantità di burro, la farina forte ti permette di poter assorbire il grasso della ricetta e lavorare l’impasto!
      Alternativamente puoi usare una farina di media forza (11%-12% di proteine) e preparare un bignè classico: Bignè Tradizionale

      A presto!
