Cooking – Strawberry, Chantilly, Lemon Curd Crepes

Jun 29, 2014 by

The Coeur D’Alene farmer’s market has a crepe truck as one of their vendors. When touring with my family we got a couple of crepes from there. Their strawberry, Chantilly, lemon curd crepe was beyond amazing, I had to try to replicate it at home.

I found three separate recipes for each of the items – it was not an easy dessert to make with all of the components but so very worth every minute when you are ready to indulge.

This was my first attempt at lemon curd, I was very glad that I didn’t make scrambled eggs my first pass, make sure you temper the eggs well before adding to the hot mix.

Chantilly –

Just a fancy name for whipped cream, I make this often so this was easy:
1C heavy whipping cream, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1TB sugar – whip until desired texture. Sometimes I add more sugar if I think it needs it.

I used an organic heavy whipping cream making the end result very yellow after the vanilla was blended.

I don’t know how my batter had lumps so my first crepe from the batter was discarded. I saved it by running it through a strainer. Next time, these will go in the blender.
