15 large strawberries, hulled and tops trimmed
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
1 3/4 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Grease 9-inch pie plate.
For Éclair Shell: Heat water and butter to a boil in small saucepan. Stir
in flour and salt. Reduce heat to low; stir vigorously for 1 minute or until
mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Cool for 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs, one
at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition, until smooth. Spread evenly
over bottom of prepared pie plate.
Bake for 15 minutes or until sides puff up. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F;
bake for an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in
pan on wire rack. Press center down when cool.
For Filling: Place 1 1/4 cups morsels and milk in medium, uncovered microwave-safe
bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Morsels may retain
some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second
intervals, stirring until smooth. Do not overheat. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla
extract. Spread mixture evenly over bottom of éclair shell. Refrigerate until
chocolate is firm.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and remaining vanilla extract in small mixer bowl
until smooth. Spread evenly over chocolate layer.
For Decorating: Arrange strawberries on cheese layer with pointed sides
up. Microwave jam in small, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power
for 30 seconds; stir. Brush jam over strawberries and drizzle between strawberries.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Pipe or dollop whipped topping between strawberries and éclair shell edge.

power for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals,
