Eclair Squares…

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:

Eclair Squares

1 stick butter
1 Cup water
1 Cup flour
4 eggs
3oz. cream cheese
2TBL. milk
1 large package Vanilla Pudding
1 1/2 Cup Milk
8oz. Package Cool Whip
Chocolate Syrup
Fresh Berries

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
Fold in 8oz. Package of Cool Whip
Spread over the top of crust. Refrigerate. Serve with chocolate syrup and fresh berries.

    Should it be 1/2 c of milk for the filling, or 1 1/2 c like in the directions? (I'm guessing it's just a typo?) I made them once already and they were delish, I just can't remember which measurement I followed, lol!

    It's 1 and 1/2 Cup of Milk. I fixed it. Thanks for the heads up. I'm so glad you made it and liked it!

    Your recipe for Eclair Squares is slightly confusing to me. Are you supposed to add all the filling ingredients together and put it on the crust or layer it on? I would appreciate the clarification, thank you.

      Hi Robin! 

      The cream cheese, vanilla pudding and cool whip are mixed all together before you spread over the crust. 

      Sorry for confusion. I hope this helps.

    These look delicious. I can’t wait to try them. Could you tell me what size pan is best? Thanks
