Smoked Salmon Eclairs - For Mudbug

Mud, saw your post. While I haven't given this one a try yet, it looks Oh So Good! Can I have mine with a dollup of sour cream and caviar?

Smoked Salmon Eclairs

1/2 c. water
4 tbsp. butter, cut into small chunks
1/2 c. flour
2 extra lg eggs, beaten lightly
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dry dill

FILLING
1/2 lb. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sour cream
6 oz. smoked salmon, chopped fine
Juice of 1/2 lemon and grated zest
1 tbsp. fresh dill, minced
Dash of nutmeg
1 tsp. minced garlic
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine water and butter in small saucepan, bring to boil over high heat.

Add flour all at once; beat vigorously until dough forms ball, pulls away from sides of pan and leaves a thin film on bottom of pan. Transfer to mixing bowl. Save 1 tablespoon of beaten egg.

Beat the rest of the egg into the dough in two steps, beating until dough is shiny and smooth. Put dough in pastry bag with #3 star tip. On lightly greased baking sheet, lay down 3 x 1/2 inch strips about 2 inches apart.

Bake 15 minutes until puffed up and brown. Remove from oven. Split in half lengthwise. Reassemble and return to baking sheet. Brush top of each with thin film of reserved egg.

Sprinkle on combined garlic powder and dill. Reduce oven to 200 degrees. Return eclairs to oven for 20 minutes until dry and crisp. Remove and cool. Mix filling ingredients together. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Just before serving, spoon filling onto bottom half of eclair and top with top half. Makes about 16. Serves 8

You're very welcome, mud. Love, love, love little bites. If no one is looking, I'll split a third with you. Thinking, puff pastry might work too, in a pinch? OSG?

OK the name of these grossed me out for a split second, but once I got over that they sounded great!

Perhaps a fancy name change would help. It does sound delicious.
