this easy recipe creates light crepes that are easy to roll or fold -- turning them over in the pan is the hardest part -- be patient waiting for them to thicken before you flip them - using a long thin spatula will help prevent tears in normal frying pan -- this recipe is small and makes about 8 to 10 - 6” crepes

Ingredients

1 c
all purpose flour
2
eggs
1/2 c
water
1/2 c
milk
optional -- sugar to taste
optional - vanilla syrup or bean - to taste

FILLING INGREDIENTS - BE CREATIVE !

1/4 to 1/2 c
powdered sugar
4 oz
creme cheese
dab
strawberry jam - or anything you want
optional - milk or syrup - not much

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crepe - put the wet ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl -- then sift the flour into the mix -- I usually add the butter slowly at the end of the mixing
--------------------------------
Cooking melt a little butter in a medium size pan
- pour a small amount of the mix in pan so that it covers the bottom
- cook on medium heat until the sheen is off the top of the crepe and then start thinking about turning it over -- once flipped it takes very little time for the other side to cook
2
Filling - place the powdered sugar in a mixing bowl
add the softened creme cheese - fold together with a fork (can use two if you are dexterious) until the sugar and cheese starts to incorporate -- then whisk-- it will take a few minutes depending on how soft the cheese is - you can add a little liquid (milk - syrup ) to the mix if you wish --- you can also add butter( not much) if you wish -- the idea here is to have a sauce that will fill the inside of the crepe -- not a cake frosting -- all though that would probably work too
3
plating - preparation
- place the crepe on a plate -- brown side down ( you can do it either way)
- dab a little strawberry jam on the crepe -- my wife likes to spread it -- I just put a dab on and forget it - feel free to substitute any type of jam you want(duh) -- my wife likes strawberry
- pour a small amount of the creme cheese filling on the crepe away from the edge - roll from that side - drizzle more sauce on the top - if you want sprinkle some of the powdered sugar on top
