The Pumpkin Filling
Eclairs are one of my favorite desserts to make. Once you master making the pate a choux dough, the varieties are endless. These pumpkin eclairs with maple glaze are especially flavorful and aromatic – capturing all those fall flavors that are so popular this time of year.
The fluffy pumpkin maple filling is made with pumpkin puree, whipped cream and just the right amount of spices. It’s so good, you’ll want it all season long! Try it with other recipes, such as cakes, cheesecakes or cupcakes. When filling the eclairs, make sure to pipe them full so you get the filling with every bite!
The filled eclairs are then dipped into a simple maple glaze. Maple and pumpkin go so well together, so I wanted to highlight the flavor in this recipe with a bit of maple extract. Using an extract adds a ton of flavor without affecting the recipe or ingredient proportions.
Enjoy this fall dessert with a cup of warm coffee in the morning, or after dinner. I recommend waiting a day before enjoying these eclairs. Just assemble them, place onto a tray and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate them overnight to allow the eclair shell to soften, which just makes these that much better!
