Back in high school, I took a gourmet cooking class -- funnest class ever! I still make some of the recipes from that class; here's one of them...
Perfect for Spring. Perfect for strawberry season. Perfect for breakfast or a fancy dessert! This is an easy recipe that gets me lots of 'yums!'
Strawberry Cream Crepes
2 pints sliced strawberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 3 oz. package of cream cheese
1 cup whipping cream
sugar to taste
Prepare crepes using your favorite recipe. Toss the strawberries with the 1/4 cup of sugar and set aside. With a hand mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Slowly beat in whipping cream until smooth and thick, but not stiff. Add sugar to desired sweetness.
Place a some cream in each crepe and roll up. Chill. Serve strawberries over the crepes.
♦ I double this recipe, especially if company's coming over.
♦ Use a *hand* mixer, not a stand mixer for this recipe.
♦ Sometimes we like strawberries inside the crepes, too.
♦ I've seen this recipe done with chocolate crepes. Oo-la-la! Try it!
