Recipe: Amaretto Mascarpone and Blueberries Dessert Crepes


I previously posted a recipe for a Red White and Blue Amaretto Mascarpone Trifle… well… if Trifle is not your thing or you want a more elegant dessert… this recipe for Amaretto Mascarpone and Blueberries Dessert Crepes is just the ticket.

The filling is quick and easy … the same as what was used in the trifle recipe… and fresh blueberries… what could be simpler?

TIPS

You can use any crepe recipe you have or use mine… I urge you to make your own and not buy tjose pre-made ones in the grocery store… they really are easy to make and so very good. My crepe recipe is here.

I have a previous post of Crepe Making Tips.

I must warn you.. the filling is very sweet… but when paired with the tart blueberries… the combination is just perfect.

I sprinkle powdered sugar on the dessert just before serving… wait until you are ready to serve it to sprinkle the powdered sugar.. otherwise it dissolves into the crepe.. not a bad thing.. it just takes away from the presentation.

You can make these in advance. Layer them between sheets of waxed paper. Store them in the fridge in a sealed Zip Loc bag. Bring them to room temperature before assembling the dessert.

This recipe will make about 5-6 dessert crepes, depending on the size of the crepes.

These are heaven in your mouth…. I hope you try them!

Hi Melanie..

Thank you for stopping by...

I've been making crepes since I was a teenager.. I wouldn't recommend electric makers... personally.. I don't think they're necessary... a simple crepe pan or small skillet with rounded edges will work fine.. just follow the tips and anyone can be a pro.

I hope you find my tips helpful. Thanks again for coming and commenting... please stop by again.
