Crepes & A Blackberry Wine Syrup

We love crepes in our home and make them often. I utilize crepes for many a preparation especially during the holiday season. From fruit filled crepes, luxurious lobster cream filled crepes to my families favorite Christmas tradition of Manicotti crepes, having this simple recipe on hand makes life so easy and quick when looking for a gourmet meal to impress our guests.

Here I have them paired with a simple and fresh strawberry and cream filling with the addition of a Blackberry Syrup. Below you will find my recipe for the syrup.. although I used Blackberry Wine here, you can make a syrup with any wine or liquid you prefer. Flavored wines make wonderful accents to savory dishes as well as desserts. Enjoy cooking with a variety of flavors, it makes your recipes unique to you!

Crepe Recipe

6 eggs
1 ½ cups flour
¼ tsp. salt
1 ½ cups water
2 tablespoons melted butter
Butter, for coating the pan

Measure all ingredients into a blender jar; blend for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides. Blend for 15 seconds more. Cover and let sit for 1 hour to allow flour to absorb more of the liquids.

Blackberry Syrup

1 -1/2 cup Blackberry Wine
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Combine the wine, sugar and vanilla in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low; cook for 10 minutes or until the liquid becomes syrupy and has reduced by about two-thirds.

Buon Appetito!
