These Triple Berry Crepes are a breeze to make and taste so good! A perfect way to use fresh berries!
Do you ever go berry picking? I haven't done that for ages. Way back in the day we would head out to the woods by our house and go on a raspberry hunt. The bushes would grow wild and we could usually find enough for a quick snack. If we wanted fresh blueberries or strawberries, then we would load up in the car with our pails and head out to our local picking place. Blueberries were pretty easy to get off the bushes but the strawberries, of course, were close to the ground and a bit more work to get. At first I would start out trying to eat as much as I could pick but soon realized my stomach couldn't handle them all. So soon our pails were full and back home we would go. We weren't into jam making then; instead we (I mean mom) would make the most delicious blueberry pies and strawberry shortcake. Two of my favorite desserts!
Summer is the best time to use berries whenever you can! These crepes are special too with the whipped cream lemon curd filling! Another "new" favorite dessert to enjoy!
