My Very Late DB Entry: Eclairs

I feel like such a schmuck. I really have no real good excuse for being so late with this entry except for the fact that I procrastinated. I meant to make them the week they were due, but things got busy.
I'm glad I did make them though, they really turned out nicely. Other DB'ers said the pate choux was a little eggy, but I didn't find it eggy at all. I ended up using Dorie Greenspan's recipe for pastry cream because it is a foavorite of mine. I did use the glaze and sauce recipe, and omg I had so much left over.

Since I'm trying to lose some weight, I ate only 2 (but I wanted 10!), and took the rest to work. They were gone by 2pm. : )
Thank you Meeta from What's for Lunch Honey? and TonyTahhan for a wonderful challenge!

You can find the recipe for Pierre Herme's eclairs here.

These look great! I'm a big fan of Dorie's pastry cream as well; it's so delicious! The chocolate glaze is wonderful too. I had a ton left over as well. It'll be great with ice cream!
