There’s always a reason to celebrate at Delightful Pastries and June 22 is most certainly no exception. Delightful Boozy Eclairs lr DSC02844National Éclair Day is June 22. The mini pastry ($30/pound for about 30), made with choux dough filled with custard and a drizzle of icing on the outside, is the perfect cure for anyone with a sweet tooth. Full size éclairs are $4 each.

At such a delightfully small size, make sure you buy as many as you can get your hands on.
