Gluten Free Strawberry Cream Crepes





This is a recipe created by my daughter who lives bravely with Celiac disease.  It has been a struggle sometimes, but she has been independent enough to really try some new things and cook what sounds good to her.

For this recipe we used the GF flour blend found at Costco.  I'm guessing it would work with any GF flour blend.

Crepes

Blend in blender:

1 1/2 C milk
3 eggs
2 T melted butter
3/4 C flour blend
2 T sugar
dash salt

Melt some butter on a pan or electric skillet.  Pour the thin batter onto the hot pan and lift and rotate the pan to make a very thin coating.  This will cook through quickly and then you can flip to lightly brown the other side.  The crepe making part goes quickly!

Filling

1 package of cream cheese
1 C heavy whipping cream
1 C powdered sugar

Whip the filling together in a mixer with the whisk attachment.  Put a little filling in each crepe along with fresh sliced strawberries.  Then decorate the filled crepe with the filling and strawberry slices on the top too.

****Note:  We also like to make this recipe for the rest of the family with regular all-purpose flour but it takes more.  Double the flour to 1 1/4 C.  The gluten-free crepes tear a little easier than the regular ones, but still taste great.  This makes a fun family treat.
