Chocolate Eclair Pie

I don't think I have ever tasted so good in my life.  This is seriously so amazing it taste just like the donut!  The recipe originally called this a cake because well it is made in a cake pan but I don't think it personally fits the word cake because of the amazing crust it just reminds me of an amazing pie! So go make this and enjoy your self of this delicious dessert!

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • Filling:
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large box (5.1 ounces) vanilla instant pudding
  • 3 cups milk
  • Topping:
  • 1 8 oz. container cool whip  
  • chocolate syrup 
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9"X13" glass baking pan.
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 evenly. Mixture will be very wet. *If the sides of your pan are too greased you won't be able to get the mixture to stay up the sides so make sure to just lightly grease. No big deal but I like the crust to go up the sides a bit.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown  You may want to check it occasionally-you don't want to overcook the crust, it will ruin the cake! Remove from oven and let cool (don't touch or push bubbles down).
For the Filling: Whip cream cheese in a medium bowl. In separate bowl make vanilla pudding by beating the pudding mix and the milk for 3 minutes and put in the fridge until set. Make sure pudding is thick before mixing in with cream cheese. Slowly add pudding to cream cheese, mixing until there are no lumps. Let cool in fridge.When the crust is completely cooled, pour filling in. Top with layer of cool whip  and serve with a drizzle chocolate syrup.
