Equal Time For Eclairs

I think *my current obsession with eclairs from the Pine Cone Restuarant started with a Twitter comment to Deb's Random Writings. Is that called a twomment or a cweet? Figure that one out, Grammarly. (Grammarly corrected me when I typed in, "Grammerly.")




*my current obsession started six hours ago

  1. this looks lovely, but not something I'd be able to eat, too sickly for me, although I do like to try new things

    1. It certainly is custardy, maybe that's better than sticky. Eclairs were never my favorite and I managed to resist getting one today, even to —gasp—share. But now that I'm looking at it again...

    1. I ate had a cream puff, Jan, but my mother was happy with her eclair.

  3. Oh my word, that eclair will do nothing, nothing I tell you, for your arteries! Should such a thing be legal? I'd have one bite then stop! Gonna have to look up what a twoment and cweet are now! #mysundayphoto

    1. Not that my giant cream puff was much better, but the ecliar was for my 93-year-old mother and she's allowed to eat what she wants as long as it doesn't pull out her teeth (; Not only legal, but mandatory in some parts of the state.

  9. I used to love these in my younger years. Can't eat them anymore. It's not fair.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  10. Hi Jeanna, you don't know how pleased I am to read that my comment touched someone on the otherside of then world enough to start an obsession!I think it should be a Twiment though, Grammerly obviously has much to learn!.. I'm not sure if I would have taken a photo of that beauty before running my tongue through the topping. I just don't have that kind of will power!

    1. Twiment, I like that. There is another photo of my mother sneaking her finger in the frosting. I think you're a force, Deb (:

    2. I managed to go 3 weeks without ice cream this time. Delicious, it was. And there's still some in the freezer.

    3. That can be a long ass time if you're an ice cream eater. I'm pretty good about that normally, not so much today since I just got a tub of Badger Tracks ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, fudge and caramel).

  15. oh my gosh -- we used to get similar to these when I was a kid for a very special treat. My little brother called them chocolate declares. Now Iam so hungry and have absolutely no idea where I could go to get one.

    1. Oh my, I choc o late declare! Ha.
      No? I'd think you could find an eclair somewhere between northern Cali and OR or is it as healthy as it looks. For fried fat, cheese and beer, you know where to go. Wouldn't that make a lovely road trip? We're leaving the land of greens and granola to just say, "What the hell."

  16. I WANT one!!!!
    Back when I had more energy, way back in college, I remember making eclairs at home. Not that hard actually and they looked great. But these... they look so good.

    1. I bet homemade ones where a more reasonable size and incredible once they've cooled enough to eat.
