Cream Puffs & Éclairs

My brother got me a French cookbook for Christmas, and these looked so good that I had to try them.  The only real difference between cream puffs (choux) éclairs is the shape.  Otherwise, they're the same thing.

Braided Fruit Coffee Cake

I made this with raspberry jam and frozen blueberries, though  you could do it with just about any fruit you'd like.  Strawberries would be pretty good...
