Ingredients

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

Filling:

  • 1 (5.1 ounce) package vanilla instant pudding
  • 2 cups Promised Land Dairy Old Fashioned Eggnog
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping:

  • Crushed candy canes about 2-3

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9"X13" glass baking pan.

  2. For the Eclair Crust: In a medium saucepan, melt butter in water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in flour. Mix in one egg at a time, mixing completely before adding another egg. Spread mixture into pan, covering the bottom and sides slightly.

  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.

  4. For the Filling: In a large bowl, beat the pudding mix and eggnog with a hand mixer. Add the cream cheese and beat until combined and smooth. When the crust is completely cooled, pour filling in and spread into an even layer.

  5. For the Whipped Cream: In a large bowl, whip cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream on top of pudding mixture.

  6. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. Chill until ready to serve. Cut into squares to serve.
