Mousse Filled Crepes

by Laura

This week is going to be “Treat Week”. I have a good back log of dessert recipes that I need to share. I know a lot of you like to come here for main dish recipes and I promise that next week I’ll give you a good one. I have a great crock pot recipe to share with you then.
Today is several recipes that I used to make the Mother’s Day gift I did for my mom and mother-in-law. I gave them each a crepe kit. Each kit included crepes, fresh strawberries, chocolate mousse and cheesecake mousse. Crepes are fun and versatile. Tomorrow I’ll share with you another way to serve them. The crepe recipe I have came from my mom. It’s the one she always uses. According to the recipe card I have from her, she got this recipe from the Deseret News on April 28, 1985. I know that in a lot of crepe recipes it says not to flip the crepe, but that’s what this recipe calls for and it’s the way mom does it and the way I do it. If you have never made crepes before, give it a try. It’s just like making a pancake.

Crepes
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
shortening
Beat eggs until light. Add milk and flour and mix until smooth. Heat small (about 8 inch) Teflon skillet or crepe pan. Heat skillet on medium and add a dab of shortening to the pan. Pour in a scant 1/4 cup batter. Lift the pan and tilt it back and forth until batter spreads evenly in a circle. When batter looks dull and dry, with a quick flip of the wrist, flip crepe over with a spatula and cook about 30 seconds or until light brown in areas. (I use a silicone spatula to do this). Roll or fold crepes and serve with syrup, jelly, fresh fruit, mousse, or pie filling. Of course once filled, I like to add a dollop of sweetened whipped cream! Makes 12-14 crepes.
Mousse in a Minute (The cheesecake mousse)
1 small pkg instant pudding (any flavor you like, I used cheesecake)
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1 cup cool whip
Mix pudding as directed on package using 1 1/2 cups milk. Fold in whipped topping. Makes 2 2/3 cups.
Chocolate Mousse
I used the recipe that I have previously posted HERE!

I’m making crepes for my 4 yr. old granddaughter for her birthday dinner. I’m certainly going to try these ones but I think I might try a dinner one and then these for dessert. Thank you for all the great crepe recipes.
