Chocolate Eclairs

Today I made mini eclairs with chocolate ganache glaze. It was my first time attempting to make pate a choux dough so I was ready for an adventure. I used Gale Gand's recipe from Food Network and it turned out pretty well.
First I made the pastry cream and let it chill in the refrigerator.
Then I mixed up the pate a choux, piped the dough onto a baking sheet, and baked up the shells.
After the shells cooled, I filled a pastry bag with pastry cream and filled the shells.
The filled shells were then dipped in the ganache glaze.
Finally, the eclairs were placed on a baking sheet in the refrigerator to set.
