My mom used to make chocolate eclairs and it was beyond a treat when she did. She had a different recipe that I couldn't find, so I used a dessert cookbook that I got as a gift.
|Dough in pastry tube. Holy mess batman. And those are my legs.|
|In the oven!|
|Out of the oven. I think I made them too small.|
|I learned my lesson with the dough debacle. This is how I filled the pastry tube with the filling.|
|Stuffed with filling.|
|The final result...|
The process was intense. And messy. But SO worth it. I love cooking for others--especially when I do a good job and people love what I make. And they LOVED these eclairs! YAY!
