Cooling pâte à choux - to slit or not to slit?

TorontoJo | Jun 14, 2014 04:07 AM

I've been perusing many, many pâte à choux recipes, and about half say to cut a slit to release the steam after baking and half don't and just say to cool the baked puffs on a rack.

It's been a loooong time since I've baked pâte à choux and I honestly can't recall what I did before.

Curious as to what all of your experiences are -- do you slit? Keep them whole?
