Spiked Eggnog Eclairs with Nutmeg Glaze

Spiked Eggnog Eclairs with Nutmeg Glaze

One of my more ambitious Christmas kitchen projects this year was these Spiked Eggnog Éclairs with Nutmeg Glaze. These are a weekend project, good for a freezing cold Saturday. Or you can split the prep over a few days, like I did, making the eggnog pastry cream in the morning before work, then baking and filling the shells later. I love eggnog – it’s so indulgent but so good. With a splash of rum and just a hint of nutmeg it’s one of my favorite Christmas treats. So turned into a pastry cream and piped into freshly baked éclair shells? I am definitely into it.


For the eggnog pastry cream:
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 TBS cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 5 TBS salted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup dark spiced rum

For the elcair shells and nutmeg glaze:
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 10 TBS salted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup bread flour, sifted
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 TBS dark rum
