Éclairs in a Pan!

This recipe is an American version of the Classic French Éclair.
This can be made with French Vanilla Pudding Mix or Chocolate Pudding Mix.

I hesitated to post this recipe. I ate it somewhere at some function and I can't even remember where it was. The only thing I remember was this delicious dessert.
I also hesitated to post it because I thought there was no way that everyone I know wouldn't already have this recipe.
It's easy, it's delicious, it's made in the Iconic All American 9" X 13" Baking Pan!
