tasty treats: mini strawberry éclairs

Is it just me, or do miniature things taste better than those of the full-sized variety? I recently stumbled upon this recipe for mini strawberry éclairs and couldn’t wait for an excuse to whip them up (that excuse being “it’s Sunday and it’s spring!” Totally legit). Apart from the fact that you have to focus on three separate steps (the pastry, the macerated berries and the cream filling), they were shockingly easy to make and I really enjoyed the process. The results were light, fresh, not overly sweet and would make the perfect dessert atop your Easter table (or any table, if I’m being honest). Plus, their miniature size means you can enjoy two or three without feeling guilty – logic at it’s best.

    This seems to be so delicious! I sometimes shop some at the bakery near home (‘éclairs aux fraises’ we say in French) and it is damned good… I’ll try asap this recipe, my mouth is already watering!

    These look so good! I admire you for cooking/baking something every week. I like to think my excuse is that I am poor (student) so I don’t have the money for ingredients, but really, I don’t have time. I hope I get the balance right when I’m done with my studies :) xx

      Time is definitely a struggle! I totally understand. I actually bake to de-stress. I find it very theraputic (which is dangerous for my waistline!)
