Cinnamon Eclairs with Pumpkin Cream

These don't fall under the category of healthy that I'm trying to highlight this month, but you have to indulge once in a while. The Hub and I made these cinnamon eclairs with pumpkin cream for dessert on Christmas Eve. The original recipe was developed by Annalise of the blog Completely Delicious for last year's Project Food Blog Challenge: Pumpkin. We were a little concerned about the fact that the original recipe makes 50 eclairs (although they weren't very big). Still it was more than we could use, what with all the other goodies we had around the house. We decided to go ahead and make the recipe as is instead of trying to divide the ingredients. They are actually a lot of work and even though everyone liked them, I wouldn't recommend making them on an already busy day such as Christmas Eve. We also replaced the dark chocolate on top with white chocolate. I thought the dark might overwhelm the delicate flavor of the pumpkin.
