  • 3 Tbsp. confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 lg. egg
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter

    Filling

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup pureed strawberries
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

    Sauce

  • 1/4 stick butter

  • 1/2 lb. strawberries, steamed and quartered
  • 1/8 cup strawberry liqueur
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sauce

    Directions

    1. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk all wet ingredients in a separate bowl, then slowly add the wet to the dry, mixing until all lumps disappear.



    2. Cover and refrigerate for an hour. Brush or spray a six inch skillet with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat.



    3. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet, swirling the skillet so the batter covers the entire bottom. Cook for 30 - 40 seconds, flip, cook for another 15 seconds. Stack crepes individually, separating with a sheet of wax paper.



    Filling



    1. Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add sour cream, sugar, strawberries, and vanilla and beat until smooth.



    2. Place 3 tablespoons of filling on the bottom third of the crepe. Fold the end over and roll firmly. Repeat with remaining ingredients and crepes. Place stuffed crepes on a platter, cover and refrigerate for an hour.



    Sauce



    1. In large saute pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add sugar and cook for 2 minutes. Add strawberries and cook for 1 minute.



    2. Add the liqueur and chocolate sauce and simmer for 2 minutes. Add crepes to pan and cook for a minute or so, basting with the sauce.



    3. Move crepes to a serving plate and top with remaining sauce.
