  3. Stir constantly, and as soon as it starts to coagulate, add the butter, and stir until it melts. Remove and set aside to cool. Transfer to a pastry bag. 
  4. Make a hole in the bottom of each choux and fill in with the lemon cream filling. 

For the topping

  1. In a saucepan, add the strawberry jam and a little bit of water to thin the jam.
  2. Arrange the choux on a serving platter and pour the strawberry sauce on top.
