Something Sweet for the Crepes
Berries’n Cream Crepe Filling
4 cups fresh berries, (slice strawberries)
2 Tblsp sugar
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
¼ cup lemon juice
½ cup whipping cream, whipped
12 dessert crepes
Whipped cream for garnish
12 whole berries for garnish
Sprinkle sliced berries with sugar and set aside. Beat condensed milk with lemon juice until thick. Fold in berries and whipped cream. Divide between crepes and fold. Garnish with additional whipped cream and a berry centered on cream.
Note: 20 oz frozen berries can be substituted for the fresh berries. Drain off juice and omit the sugar.
I used my own raspberries from the freezer. This was delish...super-rich. Hubby said that at first he thought he'd eat 2 of them, but by the time he finished the first one he didn't need another.
I'd never beated sweetened condensed milk before, nor even thought of mixing it with whipped cream, but it was really good. And would likely be good used with other desserts as well.
