And mine has been in questionable supply these last few days....I don’t know what’s gotten into me….
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups prepared, chilled pastry cream
2 cups whipped cream, lightly sweetened
chocolate syrup or homemade chocolate sauce
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9″X13″ glass baking pan
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 evenly. Mixture will be very wet.Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.Remove from oven and let cool.
For the Filling: Whip cream cheese in a medium bowl. Make sure pastry cream is thick before mixing in with cream cheese. Slowly add pastry cream to cream cheese, mixing until there are no lumps. Let cool in fridge.When the crust is completely cooled, pour filling in. Top with whipped cream, then drizzle it with the chocolate syrup.
