Super Easy Dessert Crepes

 Dessert Crepes

I've ordered dessert crepes many times in restaurants because it's a nice light dessert after a heavy meal. They can be filled with just about any fruit or even with melted chocolate! Or just roll them up unfilled and serve them with some fresh whipped cream.

 I don't know why I never thought to make them at home! So one night, back in 2009, I decided to try this recipe and I was amazed at how easy, light a fluffy these crepes were! I filled them with sauteed apples and topped them with fresh whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon powder. But to make it even easier, they can be filled with any canned pie filling!

I found this dessert crepe recipe here posted by one of my favorite home cooks known as Not Your Momma. I took her recipe and tweaked it using the ingredients I had in my pantry. I simplified the directions to use the least amount of kitchen utensils as possible and to get the crepes done quickly. I was having a sweet tooth craving and needed a quick fix! I was so happy with the results and have made these crepes many times since that first night many years ago. I hope you'll give it a try also!

3/4 cup cold milk or low fat half n' half
3/4 cup cold water
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
 2 tsp. baking powder
5 tablespoons of melted butter
In a medium size bowl whisk together the milk, water and vanilla extract. Then whisk in egg yolks and sugar. Whisk quickly for about 1 minute. Add flour, baking powder and butter. Whisk quickly again for about 1 more minute. Place a small 8 inch non stick skillet over medium heat. Very lightly grease pan with some butter. When pan is hot add 1/4 cup of the batter to the pan and swirl to cover the bottom of the pan evenly in a thin layer. Cook until golden brown on bottom, lifting edge to check. Flip and cook 30 seconds on second side. Remove crepe to a plate and repeat until all crepes are cooked. Then fill and roll each crepe as desired with fruit or melted chocolate. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Makes about 10-12 crepes.
