So, first make your sauce, then serve it warm with crepes, or cold- either way would be scrumptious!
|Cranberry- Blackberry Crepes|
Combine 2 cups water and 2 cups sugar in large saucepan; stir to dissolve sugar. Heat to boiling; boil 5 minutes. Add 1 bag fresh cranberries (12 oz bag) and 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blackberries. Cook about 10-15 minutes, depending if you want it to "jell". (The longer amount of time will allow it to jell). Skins will pop so be careful about it splattering on you! Serve warm or chilled. makes about 4 cups!
|Pour about 1/3 or less into 6-8" skillet. Non-stick works well for this!|
|These only take a short amount of time to cook. Some recipes say to cook one side but we like both sides cooked.|
|These go quickly but if you want everyone to eat at about the same time, store them in a place to keep warm!|
|We used a tortilla warmer! Works perfectly!|
|Butter is a nice addition before you fill them. If you're cutting back on fats/calories, then leave this step out. (boo hoo)|
|Spread a small amount of butter on the inside of the crepe.|
|Scoop about 1 tablespoon of fruit filling inside. Fresh strawberries are AWESOME but it's not that season right now....|
|Roll up like a burrito!|
|What a great looking crepe Derek! (He made the crepes while I got the kids started with school today. Then I came back and assembled them. It's so nice to have him home!)|
|Now, if I had homemade whipped cream, I'd use that but I've been trying to stay away from buying creams and fattening stuff. So, I grabbed this out of the freezer. It's still yummy! (and fattening... I know!)|
|And here they are!|
|The kids are using the plates they created at a local ceramic shop. FUN! Caleb gives it a thumbs up!|
|Talia's devouring hers!|
|haha Aidan licked his plate clean!|
|I felt like doing the same thing... but I refrained.|
It hardly needs washing now!
