Ingredients:

For the Eclair Pastry:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce

For the Caramel Drizzle:

  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine water, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Once the mixture is boiling, reduce the heat to low and add the flour all at once. Stir vigorously until the mixture forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for a couple of minutes. Then, add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, until the dough is smooth and glossy.
  5. Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe the dough onto the prepared baking sheet into 4-inch long strips, leaving space between each eclair.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the eclairs are golden brown and puffed. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. While the eclairs are cooling, prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Fold in the diced apples and caramel sauce until well combined.
  8. Once the eclairs have cooled, use a sharp knife to slice them in half horizontally. Fill each eclair with the caramel apple filling.
  9. For the caramel drizzle, heat the caramel sauce and heavy cream in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and combined.
  10. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the filled eclairs.
  11. Serve immediately and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors!

Note: You can refrigerate any leftover eclairs in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Just be sure to bring them to room temperature before serving for the best taste and texture.
