How to Make Your Own Crepes Ingredients: (1 cup) flour 1 tablespoon salt 1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup cream 1/8 cup sugar 3/4 teaspoon salt Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and butter until well combined.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk egg yolks, vanilla extract, cream, sugar, and salt together until just combined.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to scrape the batter down into the bowl.
Add cream, egg yolk, vanilla, and sugar, alternating with the flour mixture to form a dough that you will be able to roll out into a ball.
Use your fingers to shape the dough into a rectangle about 3 inches in diameter and about 2 inches thick.
Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until it is approximately 1 inch thick.
Cut into 20 pieces and place in the refrigerator to rest for about 10 minutes.
To make your crepes: Beat the eggs until they are pale and fluffy.
Whisk the cream until smooth.
Whack the eggs with a spatula until they form a thick dough.
Add flour mixture, whisking until the dough is sticky.
Gently fold in the sugar and vanilla extract until the crepes are just moistened.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
To enjoy your crepe, drizzle a little extra cream on top.
Notes *Do not use cream cheese.
Instead, use a 1/16 teaspoon cream cheese paste instead.
For the vanilla extract: Mix together 1 tablespoon cream cheese and 1/6 teaspoon vanilla until smooth, about 3 minutes.
Transfer to a small bowl and allow to sit for 10 seconds before using. 3.5.3208
