Chocolate Eclairs

1 cup Water
1/2 cup Butter
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Flour
4 large Eggs
3 cups Milk
1/2 cup Sugar
3 tablespoons Cornstarch
4 Egg yolks
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
12 ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Shortening
1/4 cup Light Corn Syrup
6 tablespoons Milk

In medium saucepan heat milk slowly just until bubbles form around the edge. In small bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch, mixing well. Stir into hot milk all at once. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until mixture boils. Reduce heat and simmer 1 minute. Beat a small amount of mixture into egg yolks. Pour back into saucepan and cook, stirring, over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Stir in vanilla. Place waxed paper on surface to prevent skin from forming. Refrigerate until ready to use. Makes 3 cups. Will fill 12 Eclairs.

Bring water, butter and salt to boil. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Beat over low heat until mixture leaves sides of pan. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat until shiny and satiny and broken in strands. Drop three inches apart on ungreased sheet. Form 12 strips 4 x 1 inches. Bake at 400F for 35 to 40 minutes. (Will sound hollow when tapped, you should keep it from drafts). Slit tops of Eclairs and fill with custard. Spread tops with chocolate glaze, chill and serve.
