Paris: Eclair Cake


This is one of those recipes that has always been a part of my family's dessert favorites.  I didn't know how wide spread it was until a few other ladies at work brought it for dinners.  I don't know if it's part of your recipe collection, but....oh my.  If you like eclairs, even a little, you will LOVE this cake, it's a thousand times better, AND much easier to make than a traditional cake.  Ready, set, mix.
Eclair Cake Recipe
Ingredients

Place a layer of graham crackers (whole) into a greased pan, line sides as well.  Mix pudding with milk and powedered sugar until smooth and begining to thicken.  Fold in cool whip.  Place half of the mix over the crackers.  Add another layer of graham crackers (sort of like making lasagna), add the rest of the cool whip mix.  Add another layer of graham crackers.  Top with icing and chill.
