Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Layered Éclair

Following_RecipeSMALLER   It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is LAYERED ÉCLAIR!

Who’s ready for something decadent and yummy? Me! Me! This is such a treat and so easily made. Change up the flavored puddings for variations on this fun dessert.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
