Eclair Tarts

My boyfriend loves eclairs. However, I don't want to bake the same dessert over and over, it would get boring quick. So I came up with a new dessert idea...eclair tarts! It would still taste like an eclair, but I wouldn't be baking the exact same thing. Problem solved!

These eclair tarts were delicious. The tart shell is soft and crumbles apart gently when you bite into it. Just wonderful! I think you will enjoy eating this!

Tart Shell:
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

Filling:
1 (5 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 1/2 cups cold milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Glaze:
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tbs light corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

For shells: Preheat oven to 325 F.
Cream butter until soft. Beat in sugar and vanilla. Then add egg yolks and beat until creamy. Gradually stir in flour until well mixed.
Lightly spray tart molds with oil spray. Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and press into mold, spreading dough as thin as possible.
Bake in oven for about 10 minutes. Cool and remove from tart mold. I used a toothpick to help me get them out. Fill them with the whipped vanilla filling and drizzle with chocolate glaze.

For filling: Combine pudding mix and milk in medium bowl according to package directions. In a separate bowl, beat cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Beat in 1//4 cup powdered sugar and vanilla. Fold whipped cream into pudding. Use filling to fill tart shells.

For glaze: Combine butter, milk, corn syrup, and vanilla in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Decrease heat to low, add the chocolate chips and whisk until melted. Turn off heat and add powdered sugar, and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over filled tart shells.
