Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs, large
  • 6 tablespoons Flour
  • 1/2 cup Whole Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Brandy or Cognac
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Zest, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Melted butter to cook the crepes
  • 16 ounces Ricotta, fresh 2 cups
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Zest, freshly grated
  • Pinch Salt
  • 2 cups Berries such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Powdered Sugar, for serving

Instructions

  • MAKE THE CREPES
  • Place all ingredients in a blender and process until completely smooth.
    Transfer to a container with a handle and pour spout, like a Pyrex 2 cup liquid glass measuring cup.
  • Heat an 8" non-stick skillet on medium high heat and brush with melted butter.
  • Working quickly, spoon 3 tablespoons or so of the crepe batter in the pan, making a circle with the batter in the middle, and filling in gaps with a little bit more batter.
    Tilt the pan and cook until set, about 1 1/2 minutes or when the outside edges look a bit dry.
  • Carefully flip using an non-stick spatula and continue cooking for another 30 seconds or so.
    Place crepes on wax paper with the crepe folded in half until ready to fill. Makes about eight crepes.
  • PREPARE THE WHIPPED RICOTTA
  • Using a food processor or hand held mixer, place all ingredients together and process until light and smooth.
    Taste and add more sugar if you like it a little sweeter.
  • PREPARE THE MIXED FRESH BERRIES
  • Place the berries in bowl and drizzle with the maple syrup. Carefully fold together until all the berries are coated.
  • To assemble, fold each crepe in half and spoon about a 1/4 cup of the whipped ricotta mixture inside, then fold in half again.
    Place them on a large platter, or portion 2 of them on smaller plates to make four servings.
  • Spoon the berries over the top, and garnish with powdered sugar.
