Lemon Creme Crepes with Strawberries and Pistachios

Have I. Got a treat. For you.

I don’t know why crepes are so taboo. They are super simple to make and so versatile! They’re basically a thin pancake that you can roll up all sorts of goodness in.  

Enjoy them for breakfast on a lazy weekend morning, or whip them up for dessert anytime.  

 

I stuffed mine with a fresh lemon creme and juicy strawberries, then dusted them with finely crushed pistachios. The combo is divine!

 

Zest and juice of 1 lemon.

 

Makes this creamy mixture extra sweet.

 

I crushed my pistachios like a caveman, but feel free to purchase them already finely chopped.

 

I chopped a cup of strawberries and macerated them with sugar until a syrup was achieved.

 

Once the crepe is done, lay on a flat surface and spread the lemon creme, top with strawberries and dust with the pistachios. It’s like a sweet burrito!

 

Fold the crepe in on both sides and turn over so the seam side is down.

 

Top with a bit more lemon creme, strawberries and pistachios. Finish it all off with a dusting of powdered sugar!

 

Somebody help me!

Make these for Valentine’s Day or an upcoming weekend. Here is the recipe for ya…
