    Unfortunately the recipe lists 1 and 1/4 cups flour. In the video Martha states 1 cup of flour. Ingredients should be listed correctly.

    Great recipe, every time turns out perfect! I noticed people asking at what temperature to cook, it you actually pay attention to the eclair recipe, the cooking instructions are very well explained! :)

      Yes it is a good recipe-- but your know-it-all at[filtered]ude was and is unnecessary. The recipes should give cooking directions (time and temp) no matter what.

    Do you have any tips for this recipe at a higher altitude? I am having a hard time with them puffing up without the bottom being too crisp. I have tried lowering and raising the temp, but then they seem to fall.

    Does anyone know the temperature at which it must be baked?

    If I remember correctly from the show Martha Bakes, you bake them for 20 minutes or so (or until they are light brown and have puffed up)
