Start to prepare the craquelin: mix all the craquelin ingredients together.
On a sheet of parchment paper, roll out the craquelin dough to a 3 mm thickness and put in the freeze.
In the meantime, prepare the choux pastries: bring the milk, the water, the salt, the sugar and the butter to boil.
While still heating, add the sifted flour and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon until a golden crust has formed on the bottom of the pot.
Cool down and whisk together with the eggs, incorporating them one by one until the batter is smooth.
Preheat the oven to 210°C (410°F) and position the baking rack in the low part.
Line a baking tray with a parchment paper sheet and, using a pastry bag, squeeze out the mixture to form 3 cm diameter round puffs.
Remove the craquelin dough from the freeze.
Cut the frozen dough with a 3 cm round cookie cutter to obtain disks.
Place the frozen craquelin disks on top of the puffs.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown.
To prepare the Orange Chantilly cream, whip the cream with the powdered sugar and grate the orange peel.
