Clementine Goat Cheese & Mixed Berry Crepes

1/2 Cup Lukewarm Water

4 Eggs

Combine in a medium bowl and mix until smooth. Cover and refrigerate over night.

If your crepe technique is a little rusty, jump on youtube.com, there are plenty of tutorials.

When you’re ready to make crepes (they are good any time of day!), remove the batter, cheese, and fruit from the refrigerator and heat a crepe pan or medium-sized non-stick skillet on medium heat. Rub with butter. I prefer my pan on medium not medium-high because I don’t like my crepes browned. A lower heat is easier to control and then you’re not in a rush to flip. The flipping is a bit tricky…

Once the butter starts to sizzle, add a little under 1/4 cup of batter or so (depending on your pan size) and quickly swirl it around the pan to cover the entire bottom of the pan.

It only takes a quick minute to cook. Loosen the edges with a spatula and then flip in any way you’re comfortable. You can use the one-handed pan flip or use a long metal spatula, whatever works for you. It only needs to cook on the 2nd side for about 30 seconds or so.

If you’re making a lot of crepes, you can place them on a plate in between waxed paper and place them in the oven on warm until you are ready to use them.

Once you’re ready to eat, you can fill them with the fruit and cheese or put it on top, then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
