Eclair Cake

This is an easy, delicious desert. I've never had anyone say they didn't like it. Can you tell that Jerzie liked it?Bring to a boil
1 cup of water
1 stick margarine
Remove from heat and add
1 cup flour
Stir and cool slightly.
Add 4 eggs, one at a time, beating well.(Just like making cream puffs)
Spread into a 9x13 pan, pushing batter onto sides of pan
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
It will look like this when it comes out of the oven. While still warm flatten the middle (I use a wooden spoon)
Cool completely.
I have carefully removed the shell at this point and put it on a tray for a fancier look.
Prepare 2 packages of vanilla instant pudding, as instructions state.
Beat in an 8oz. package of softened cream cheese.
Beat thoroughly.

Pour over shell. Let stand in refrigerator at least 10 minutes.

Top with an 8oz. Cool Whip.

Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Keep refrigerated.

Give this a try and I bet you'll love it! Can easily reduce calories by using sugar free and low fat ingredients.

That looks good, Jean. The crust looks like the same pastry I use to make cream puffs (although I have not made them in a very long time).
