My sister Alicia sent us a recipe for an Eclair Dessert some time back, but we have not had the opportunity to use it, at least not until last Saturday. We had a Church function last Saturday and took the dessert to it. It turned out very good. (Thanks Alicia.) (The poor people that ate it did not know that they were guinea pigs as we had not tried it ourselves first. Good thing it turned out okay.) They had a Pie Tasting contest going on. Now I did not know that the Éclair Dessert classified as pie, but I think that they judged all the desserts that people brought.) Anyway the Dessert came in third place. Everyone that tried it liked it, and some people called it a Cream Puff Dessert. It was beaten out by a Lemon Cream Pie and some kind of Chocolate pie. (I did not try the Chocolate one as I can take or leave Chocolate and I usually leave it.) I am going to post the recipe here for anyone that wants to try it. It is easy but very tasty.
When the recipe says a 12 X 17 pan it means an 12 X 17 pan. We used a cookie sheet with sides and at first I was sceptical that it would hold the dessert but the cookie sheet did its job.
