Variation on an eclair

Our regular lunchtime haunt on weekends is the Pig and Pastry café, Petersham. After enjoying savoury dishes we normally crave a chocolate treat. 

Last Sunday we were not disappointed; a variation on an eclair. None of the traditional choux pastry and cream was to be seen. Instead, alternating blobs of milk and white chocolate cream sandwiched between Genoese fingers topped with chocolate icing. Delicious!

Triple chocolate cookies

I was supposed to leave 6cm between each one, it’s just as well they didn’t spread out properly.

Changing to Nigella Lawson’s recipe was the right decision as the generous quantity of ingredients of the original was for 100 cookies!
