Crepes Alyson

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

Alyson is my Godchild. My sweet little girl has grown up into a

beautiful mother of two. I have a picture of her when she was young.

She is wearing a top that has the Strawberry Shortcake doll on it. Since

she has grownup, I thought that a fancier dessert made of strawberries

would be more appropriate.

½ pound Cream Cheese at room temperature

2½ tablespoons Sour Cream

5 tablespoons Sugar divided

1½ teaspoons Vanilla

8 Crepes

1½ teaspoon Butter

2½ cups Fresh Strawberries cleaned and sliced

½ teaspoon Apple Juice

2 tablespoons Cherry Liqueur

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream,

2 tablespoons of the sugar, and vanilla. Beat the mixture until smooth.

Place 3 tablespoons of the mixture on one end of the crepe. Roll the

crepe, and then refrigerate them while preparing the topping. Place

the butter and the remaining sugar in a large saucepan. Oven medium

heat, cook for several minutes, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add

the strawberries and apple juice. Over high heat, bring the mixture to

a boil and then reduce heat to medium and cook for 10-12 minutes

or until the mixture thickens. Add the cherry liqueur and

flame the mixture. To serve, place 2 crepes on each plate and spoon about ¾ cup

of the topping over the crepes.

Crepe Batter

1¾ cups Flour

1 tablespoon Sugar

2 cups Milk

1 Egg

1/3 cup Canola Oil

5 tablespoons Butter melted plus extra for pan.

Place the flour and sugar in a medium-mixing bowl. Slowly whisk

in the milk, egg, oil, and butter. Heat a nonstick pan or crepe pan over

moderate heat. Pour ¼ cup of the crepe batter into the center of the

hot pan and tilt it in all directions. The batter should coat the pan in a

light covering. After about 30 seconds, the bottom side of the crepe

should be lightly browned and the crepe should be ready to be

flipped. Shake the pan in order to release the crepe, and then turn it by using

a spatula. Cook the crepe for an additional 15-20 seconds and then

remove it from the pan.
