Strawberry Crepes

Have I mentioned how much I love breakfast foods, especially sweet, pastry, dessert-like dishes? If I could guiltlessly get away with whipping together something like these delicious crepes each morning and not suffer the consequences of a 30-somethings metabolism, I totally would...but since I can't , I try to reserve these for a weekend or special occasion...They are pretty much amazing. Serve these for brunch to visiting guests or for a fun dessert.

1 cup flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted

Add all ingredients and either mix with a wire whisk or blend in blender. Beat until smooth. If using a crepe maker, pour mixture into a shallow pie pan and dip crepe maker into batter. Heat and remove. If using a greased frying pan, pour a small amount into pan and heat on medium until edges begin to look dry. Remove. Yields 16 crepes.

1 pint whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream

Beat with electric mixer until cream is whipped. Fill crepes with cream mixture. Roll and drizzle with strawberry sauce.

Strawberry Sauce:
1 pint strawberries, washed and diced
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract

Bring ingredients to boil. Simmer 5 minutes. Let cool. Blend in blender to puree.
