Bubble Eclairs

Eclairs always look so fancy in the pastry shop window, but having a little experience baking from Dorie Greenspan's books made me confident that mine would both taste great and look fabulous.

Cream puff dough is surprisingly easy to make and I am so happy that I own OXO cookie scoops because I was able to scoop up three "bubbles" with no problem.

Because there were only three of us for dinner, I made just four eclairs, then scooped out the rest of the dough to be frozen and baked later this week for my birthday celebration treats!

I topped our bubble eclairs with crackle top cookies and filled them with ice cream and chocolate sauce.  Then each of us had one, then 1/3 more and they were gone!  Will bake up the frozen ones on Saturday and I'm sure they will be a hit.

Yummy!

  5. They look wonderful with ice cream. Not surprised they disappeared so quick.

  6. Crackle top, ice cream and chocolate sauce sounds absolutely decadent and delicious. Freezing the portioned dough sounds like a good idea.
