The perfect dessert for spring, summer and any holidays in between! These strawberry basil eclairs are simply amazing! If you’ve never had a strawberry basil dessert, this recipe will blow your mind! These eclairs are filled with a light and fluffy basil whipped cream, dipped in white chocolate ganache and topped with fresh sliced strawberries!
This dessert is not only pretty, it’s also so fun to make! Eclairs may look intimidating but they’re actually quite simple to make. I use a simple pate a choux recipe, then add the filling and topping. The basil whipped cream filling is heavenly! It’s made with a fresh bundle of basil, cream cheese (you can use mascarpone) and white chocolate. This filling would taste delicious in a cake, too!
For the strawberry component, I add fresh strawberries right on top of the eclairs. I recommend doing it right before serving the eclairs so that the berries stay fresh. Once you have the eclairs assembled and glazed, keep them stored in the refrigerator, single layer on a tray, until you’re ready to garnish and serve.
