Lemon Crème Crepes with Strawberries and Pistachios

Have I got a Treat for you!

 

I don’t know why crepes are so taboo. They are super simple to make and so versatile! They’re basically a thin pancake that you can roll up all sorts of goodness in.  

Enjoy them for breakfast on a lazy weekend morning, or whip them up for dessert anytime.  

Lemon Crème Crepes with Strawberries and Pistachios

I stuffed mine with a fresh lemon crème and juicy strawberries, then dusted them with finely crushed pistachios. The combo is divine!

Lemon zested

Zest and juice of 1 lemon.

Cream cheese with lemon zest

Makes this creamy mixture extra sweet.

Crushed pistachios

I crushed my pistachios like a caveman, but feel free to purchase them already finely chopped.

Sugar added to strawberries

I chopped a cup of strawberries and macerated them with sugar until a syrup was achieved.
