Mine would never get to the deep freeze.they would be gone pretty forward to them when we get down south.choc eclairs are one of my favourites.

Not hard provided you allow the flour to cook a bit (1-2 mins) after you add it to the water/butter mix.Most flops are because the flour hasn't cooked out enough.

Nutella makes a great icing for them. and it tastes good.

what a great idea juliewn. I used to make them by beating with a wooden spoon cause thats what my recipe said to do. now i do it with an electric beater, works perfectly.

Thanks Gardie. That was most likely the problem with my first attempt.

karenbnz, Jul 4, 12:16pm
