The simple dough used to create these pastries — called pâte à choux — takes less than 15 minutes to make, and can be refrigerated and used a little at a time for up to a week. It is the basis of a number of other French pastries, including cheese puffs and cream puffs. Unfilled éclair shells can be frozen for up to a week, and thawed in the refrigerator before use. Makes about 10 large eclairs or 20 small eclairs.
