Preheat the oven to 400ยฐF (200ยฐC). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a saucepan, combine water, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously until the mixture forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan.
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until smooth.
Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe 4-inch long strips onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350ยฐF (180ยฐC) and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
To make the pistachio cream filling, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the ground pistachios.
For the pistachio cream topping, whip the heavy cream, pistachio paste or ground pistachios, and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
Once the eclairs have cooled, slice them in half horizontally. Pipe or spoon the pistachio cream filling into the bottom halves.
Place the top halves back on the eclairs.
Pipe or spread the pistachio cream topping over the filled eclairs.
Sprinkle the finely ground pistachios over the top as decoration.
