As attracted to chocolate and sweet things as I am it might be surprising that I'm not the hugest fan of eclairs.  I think it is that the vanilla custard most people use is a bit too "gushy".

The ones I do like are from Scafuri Italian Bakery in South Chicago.  They make some that are filled with a pretty stiff Chiboust creme that has chopped pralines and raspberries in it.  One of those and a cup of their espresso (imported Italian Lavazza, 'o course) gets your day started right!

The custard tends to be cloyingly sweet.

It’s pretty good and about half the size of a football.

I am not a connoisseur of eclairs.  I like them all. In fact custard based deserts are my favorites; creme brulee, flan, really all of them.

Maybe that is desserts?

I'm kicking myself for not buying any pastries last night at the mall when I was having my precious device pampered like the little fucking princess she is.  we have snowflakes the size of quarters coming down \ and the branches of the shrubs are banging against the windows.  this nor'easter is seriously craycray but all I can think about is how I would give my eyeteeth for that (or any) gorgeous eclair right about now.

not if it's done right jon.  a good custard is silken and just sweet enough.  and with the perfect crunch of pastry shell and the bittersweet chocolate on top - this is perfection when its done right.

do not diss the pastry!
