Fancy holiday eclairs filled with pastry cream, a delicious and fancy bite size dessert that can be decorated according to holiday themes, Christmas, St Patrick, Easter, Halloween!

These eclairs can be filled with your favorite pastry cream, curd or cream cheese, here I flavored them with simple vanilla pastry cream, please check my various pastry cream and curd recipes on my "tips and tricks" category.

♥ Eclair and pastry cream or any other fillings can be made a day ahead to spare you from spending hours in your kitchen.

I like to pipe my choux pastry dough, here I used a plain round tip, but you can simply spoon dollops of dough on a parchment paper.

For this recipe, it is really better to measure your ingredients in grams, with the help of a scale.

  • 36 éclairs
  • Easy
  • 2 h 00

Recipe :


Chou pastry:

1/2 cup (125 ml) water

1/2 cup (125 ml) milk

1 stick + 2 tsp (125 g) unsalted butter

1/2 tsp (2.5 g) salt

2 tsp (10 g) sugar

1 cup + 2 tbsp. (150 g) all-purpose flour

5 large eggs, one by one


About 1 cup of powdered or icing sugar per color

3 or 4 tsp water

1 drop of gel food coloring

Pastry decors of your choice

Make the eclairs/choux:

Follow this link for my chou pastry recipe, click here

Pipe  éclairs of about 3 inches or spoon dollops of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or on a silicon mat

Bake for about 35 minutes (At the end of bakink time, you may open an eclair to check if it is dry enough inside, if not, continue to bake for a few minutes more)

Let cool completely


Make the filling of your choice

Make the glaze:

Into a small bowl, stir together the icing sugar and 4 tsp of water, add 1 drop of gel food coloring of your choice, more if you need to achieve the color of your choice

Keep your choux or éclairs whole and dip the tops into the glaze, watch carefully that the glaze is no longer dripping before turning them over on the baking sheet

Decorate each glazed chou immediately as the glaze dries quite quickly or else your decors won’t hold


Once all the éclairs are glazed and decorated, with the help of a serrated knife, very cautiously split them and proceed with piping the fillings

These cream puffs will keep up to 4 days stored in your fridge
