Moon Cake or Almost Eclairs

Today, I am going to post one of my Mom's most requested to bring desserts. The "crust" of this is cream puff.

It is delicious and requires little in the the way of ingredients or preparation time.

Plus, if you follow step 1: You can make cream puffs, and fill them with the pudding mixture!
