I just used the crepe portion of this recipe because I wanted to use some apples up. It's one of the best crepe recipes I have found. I can't waite for organic strawberries to be in season to try it with strawberry cream.
I made these for a brunch and everyone ate these and didn't touch the other stuff because these were so delicious!
My husband has always been a fan of crepes and I never thought I would be able to make them. This recipe is so easy to follow. Yes it is time consuming but well worth it! They turn out great each time. A tip, you can make the crepes up ahead of time and freeze them in your freezer (put wax paper in between them). Then just take out what you need for the recipe. Makes the process go a little faster.
The crepes are so easy to make! Especially when you use a non stick pan. I get about 20 to 30 crepes that I put between wax paper and freeze it. I put the strawberries and the filling in containers, then every morning, just take out the crepe, defrost on a griddle, the assemble them for an easy breakfast. Also great for camping trips when made ahead of time.
