Add the flour all at once and stir over medium heat until the mixture forms a ball and leaves the sides of the pan. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cool slightly. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until the mixture is smooth and shiny. Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with plain nozzle. Pipe small mounds onto a baking tray.
