Eclair

| 0 comments

I have made these several times and each time am amazed at how easy they are. I have stuffed them with different things each time. Sometimes strawberries and whipped cream, sometimes nutella. So many options!

Eclair

2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 tsp sugar
⅛ tsp kosher salt
1 cup All Purpose flour
2 tbsp butter
1 cup water

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Prepare cookie sheet with a silpat or grease it.

In a sauce pan, combine the butter and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until the butter melts. Reduce to low heat and add the flour and salt. Stir mixture constantly until the dough begins to form a stiff ball. Remove from heat. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well to incorporate them. With a spoon or pastry bag, pipe the dough onto the cookie sheet into 4 inch strips.

Bake 15 minutes in preheated oven and then reduce the heat to 325 for 20 minutes. Eclairs are done once golden browned a hollow sounding once tapped. Cool completely before eating.

You can fill with puddings, frostings, jams, fruit etc.

Make 10 Eclairs for 3 points per pastry not counting fillings.
