What's up Wednesday--Moon Pie edition

Moon Pie is a dessert that my family found out about years ago.  It was from one of my Dad's old students.  They made it once when we went to their house for dinner.  It is called Moon Pie because when you take the crust out of the oven it is all puffy and uneven and looks like the surface of the moon.  It is an easy and divine dessert, and we usually have it on Easter.  Enjoy!
Moon Pie

In a medium sauce pan melt 1/2 cup butter in 1 cup water and bring to a boil.
Add all at once 1 cup flour and stir until a ball forms.  Remove from heat and let cool about 10 minutes.

Add in 4 eggs one egg at a time to the butter/flour ball.  Don't add a new egg until the previous one is all mixed in.

Pam spray a 10x15 jelly roll pan and spread the dough on the sheet.
Bake 400 for 20 minutes

Let cool.

While that is cooling. . .

Mix 2 small boxes of vanilla instant pudding according to Pie filling directions (this means, use about 3 1/2 cups milk instead of 4 when you mix the two boxes)

In another bowl mix an 8 oz softened bar of cream cheese until very soft and whipped.  Add the pudding to the softened cream cheese. **this usually goes lumpy, and that is okay.  Spread the pudding/cream cheese mix over the crust and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Top with 1 tub of cool whip.  When you cut it to serve, pour chocolate syrup over individual servings.  Like an open faced eclair--yum!

Another yum from this week. . .

I made this Sweet and Spicy slow cooker chicken  and it was so easy and so good!  We served it on tortillas with cheese, lettuce, and sour cream.
