Crepes with Goat Cheese Mousse & Strawberry Sauce

Making crepes might sound intimidating, but they're really not difficult. Try this delicious recipe and impress your family; they don't have to know how easy it was.


Crepe Batter
* 1 ½ cup flour
* 2 cup whole milk
* 3 eggs
* ¼ cup melted butter
* pinch of salt

Goat Cheese Mousse
* 10 oz. plain goat cheese
* ¼ cup whole milk
* 1 packet of DipShit for Fruit
* 3 Tbsp. orange juice
* 1 tsp. salt

Strawberry Sauce
* ½ lb. fresh strawberries
* 2 Tbsp. sugar
* ½ cup water
* small pinch of salt


Crepes: Pour the milk into a blender then add the eggs, flour and salt. On low speed, blend until smooth. Slowly add the melted butter and run for another minute or so. Batter should be half as thick as pancake batter. Refrigerate for one hour. Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat for a few minutes then spray with non-stick cooking spray. Ladle in enough batter to just barely cover the pan, then slowly swirl the batter to the edges. Cook for about a minute until the crepe releases from the pan. Flip and cook for another thirty seconds or so. The batter or the heat may need to be adjusted as the first crepe rarely comes out perfect.

Goat cheese mousse: Combine all of the mousse ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spatula until smooth. Prepare the mousse while the crepe batter is resting and then let it sit until you're ready to fill the crepes, so that the flavors of the DipShit will have time to develop.

Strawberry sauce: Cut the strawberries thinly and place into a medium-sized saucepan. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes. You can either blend the sauce until smooth or leave it as it is. Serve it hot or at room temperature.

To serve: Lay a crepe out flat, and imagine it divided into four quadrants. Place a spoonful of the mousse into one quadrant, then fold the crepe in half across the mousse. Then fold the crepe in half again, so that the final shape is a triangle. Spoon sauce over the top. Mint or basil dress it up nicely. There will be a bunch of crepes left over, and you can cover them with plastic wrap and use them later.
