To me, nothing says spring like the first strawberry crepe cookie of the season at the food truck my husband and I go to on Sunday mornings. It’s one of my favorite sweets, but I don’t eat it as often as I would like because it can be tricky to make at home. To help, here are some tips and tricks on how to make strawberry crepe cookies that look as great as they taste!
1 1/2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 eggs, and 1 cup milk. Filling: 8-12 oz cream cheese (room temperature), 2 tablespoons butter (room temperature), 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 4 cups strawberries, and about 16 slices of bacon (for frying). For the drizzle: Strawberry icing. Decoration: Icing or chocolate sauce. As for tools: Bowls/measuring spoons/mixing spoons/spatula etc. – All in all you should use almost every mixing tool you can get your hands on to make these delicious strawberry crepe cookies!
To prepare our crepe cookie, you first need to lay out a circle of dough about 10 inches in diameter. Then take your second round of dough and press it into a second circle with about a 1/2-inch diameter hole in its center. Next, we’ll work on mixing up our filling. This recipe calls for a few simple ingredients: chocolate chips, chopped strawberries, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Now that you have all your ingredients ready to go, put them together in your blender and blend them until they’re smooth like frosting.
Filling & Topping Options
Have you ever met someone who just couldn’t pick a favorite color? I know I have. Well, that’s how it is with me and crepes. I love them all: sweet, savory, breakfast, or dessert. And one of my favorites is strawberry crepes. It’s so simple to prepare but looks like you took hours on it! My mom used to make them for us for breakfast or snacks when we were kids, now it’s one of my go-to dishes when planning dinner with friends. With many fillings to choose from – sweet cream cheese or custard, smoked salmon, and caviar – crepes always deliver amazing results!
A Word on Leftovers
When you’re preparing a crepe recipe, you have to be prepared to make more than you need. If you don’t eat them all at once, your leftover crepes can become soggy and less flavorful. Keep them in an airtight container with a damp paper towel between each layer. They should last up to three days in your refrigerator. If they start to dry out, just re-moisten with a bit of water or juice. It won’t taste like strawberries but it will give your recipe new life!
