Cream Cheese & Fruit Crepes
Makes about 20 crepes
Filling: (Source = heavenlyhomemakers.com)
16 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Crepes: (Source: Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant)
3 large eggs
3 cups water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
lots of butter or coconut oil for frying
fresh chopped fruit, fruit preserves, or maple syrup
1. In food processor, puree batter ingredients until smooth (if needed, adjust with water until it is of thin consistency). Heat a buttered 8-inch frying pan until it is hot enough that the pancake forms immediately when the batter is poured. Use 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour 3 TB batter at a time; pour into pan while tilting the pan to quickly to spread the batter thin. Cook for 1-2 minutes, flip over for 10-20 seconds more, & turn out onto a flat plate to cool. Repeat until all batter is used, adding butter to the pan after each crepe.
2. Place a little filling down the center of each crepe, roll up (like a burrito), and serve with toppings!
