GLAZED LEMON-RASPBERRY CREPES

Last year I came across a recipe for lemon-filled crepes from Wolfgang Puck, did my usual tweaking to suit my family’s tastes, and landed on this amazing dish. Though it easily qualifies as a dessert, in my opinion, the cottage cheese filling is justification for serving it for dinner–which I did. And not one complaint from my guys. Imagine that 🙂

CREPES & FILLING:

12 store-bought crepes (or you can make your own)

1 egg

4 tbsp sugar

1-3/4 cup reduced-fat small-curd cottage cheese

1/8 tsp salt

1 tsp lemon zest

1-1/2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

GLAZE:

1 egg

2 tbsp sugar

1 cup whipping cream

1 tbs lemon juice

TOPPING:

1 cup assorted berries (I used frozen)

1/2 cup berry preserves thinned with 1/4 cup water

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees; lightly oil a 9×13 baking pan

2) FILLING: To blender, add: egg, sugar,  cottage cheese, salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla; blend on medium speed 1 minute or until smooth

3) Divide filling between crepes and roll up; place crepes seam side down in baking pan

4) GLAZE: To blender, add: egg, sugar, whipping cream, lemon juice; blend on medium speed 30 seconds until well combined; pour over crepes

5) TOPPING: Scatter berries over crepes; drizzle thinned preserves over crepes

6) Bake in oven 25-30 minutes; serve and watch ’em lick the plates!

Serves: 4
