Eclair squares make for an awesome birthday breakfast.
Can I just say a big honkin’ THANK YOU (with lots of these…!) for all the nice comments, facebook wishes, tweets, texts, emails, snail-mail and birthday gifts…and to think my birthday week just started(!).
I had a great day. But c’mon, how could it not be great? When your breakfast looks like that; you get to watch giant blue people mate in 3-D on the big screen (whoa); and have Five Guys for lunch? I’m a lucky girl.
My sweet MIL made one of my favorites, Eclair Squares, for dessert Sunday night and sent us home with some too. I love this recipe because it feeds a big group and it’s easier than individual eclairs.
Here’s the Recipe:
1 stick butter
1 Cup water
1 Cup flour
3oz. cream cheese
1 large package Vanilla Pudding
1 1/2 Cup Milk
8oz. Package Cool Whip
For the Crust:
Boil: 1/2 Cup Butter (one stick) & 1 Cup Water
Add: 1 Cup Flour & 4 Eggs (beat well between each egg)
Spread into a greased pan.
Bake @ 400 for 25 minutes until puffy, and then let cool.
For the Filling:
Beat together: 3oz. Cream Cheese with 2TBL. Milk
In a separate bowl mix together: 1 Large Package Vanilla Pudding with 1 1/2 Cup Milk
Combine both until thick
