100 cute, fun, and easy recipes for the newest dessert darling--eclairs--plus cream puffs, profiteroles, gougeres, and more

Move over, macarons; catch you later, cupcakes: Eclairs are the new pastry du jour. Delicious and adorable--and fun to make at home--these tiny treats are the perfect vehicles for all your favorite flavors (sweet and savory). Here, pastry chef Jenny McCoy shares incredible recipes for eclairs and all their relatives: cream puffs, profiteroles, Paris-Brests, religieuses, gougeres, and more. The best part is that all of these creations are made from the same simple choux pastry: Once you master the basic recipe, it's endlessly customizable, from Lemon Meringue Eclairs to "Whoopie Puffs" to New England "Lobster Rolls." Recipes include traditional, fruity, chocolate, frozen, savory, and holiday-themed iterations, some classic, some clever--but all irresistible.
