So when Mr. Blenderhouse found a place a) we'd never heard of and b) brought something we've not yet had at Pastry Wednesday, we were all a little shocked.
He found this shop called Schmidt's Pastry Cottage near his home, though there are a few locations in the valley.

And he brought in these eclairs.
|We got 2 each!|
So they don't look like anything special. Eclairs are eclairs, right?
But these eclairs were awesome! The custard was a nice, light custard--not overly sweet and not too pudding-y.
|This was so good!|
The pastry portion itself was a great thickness and had nice airiness. The chocolate frosting on top wasn't anything special, but it was the right amount of sweet to the custard. It was a well balanced eclair and we all enjoyed it during our break.

Hopefully we'll have as good of luck doing some exploring outside of our usual spots as Mr. Blenderhouse did!
