Add the eggs to the dough and beat quickly, you will end up with a smooth and shiny dough.
With a pastry bag, make the profiteroles on the baking trays and bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool.
To fill the profiteroles cut them in half, remove a little of the filling and fill with the lemon cream.
