CREPES, Member cjc272421

I fill crepes with fruit (apples, blueberries, strawberries etc.) and put poweder sugar or whipped cream on top..I also mix sauce and ricotta cheese and fill crepes and put sauce and cheese on top........if you have an imagination, you can do a lot with the crepes...when using with fruit, I put some vanilla in crepe mix.......I also make them, let cool, then put wax paper between them, and freeze them in freezer bags, taking all the air out, so when I want to use some, I just take them out of the freezer and let defrost...fast meal.... :)
