Eclair squares

I LOVE eclairs, but they can be a little time consuming (totally worth it though), but these scrumptious puppies, you get basically the same thing, a different way, in half the time! So easy. So yummy. I got this from my friend and was totally stoked to make them! I could eat a whole pan of these because they're so light and fluffy and creamy! *For the record, I did NOT eat the whole pan....but I could....just sayin' ;)


Eclair Squares

1 stick butter
1 Cup water
1 Cup flour
3 oz cream cheese
4 eggs
2 T milk
1 large pkg vanilla pudding
1 1/2 C milk
8 oz cool whip
chocolate syrup

Crust

Boil 1/2 Cup Butter (one stick) & 1 C water. Add flour and eggs, beating well after each one. Spread onto a greased pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 min until puffy. Let cool.

Filling

Beat cream cheese and the 2 T of milk. In other bowl mix pudding with 1 ½ C milk. Combine with cream cheese mixture and mix until creamy. Fold in cool whip. Spread over the crust and refrigerate til it sets up a little. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and ENJOY!

Thanks so much for this fantastic recipe. What size pan did you use for this recipe? I really enjoy reading your blog and all of your recipes are great.

Hah..Erica poo, losing weight is SO not one of my goals this year! ;) You'll be glad you made them!

The size pan I used was a jelly roll pan, it was a tad too big, but i just rolled it out to the thickness I wanted and it worked out great, i just cut around the edges to make it even after. Hope it turns out for you!

So, I made these a second time, and the jelly roll pan worked after all. I didn't take the time to roll it out all the way last time, but it works perfect! :) Sorry it took me so long to get back.
