Fresh Strawberry Topping + Blueberry Cream Cheese Crepes

Fresh strawberry topping is great to have on hand!  Use it for topping ice cream sundaes, pancakes, cheesecake or add to your favorite milkshake!  It takes only a few minutes to make!
I bought a quart of beautiful strawberries and within a few days some fuzzies started to appear!  One quart is not enough for jam, so I decided on this strawberry topping!

2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. cornstarch

In a medium saucepan, add strawberries, sugar and 1/3 cup water.  Bring to a boil and simmer 3-4 minutes.  Mix cornstarch with 2 Tbsp. water.  Add to strawberries and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Chill until ready to use.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Crepes
For the crepes:
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter melted

Place flour, milk, eggs, salt, water and melted butter in a blender.  Blend until smooth.  Heat about 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil in a 8" non-stick skillet.  Warning:  The first crepe never comes out right, so don't be discouraged.  As the pan gets to proper temp, they will be perfect.

Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet allowing it to run down from the highest point.  Swirl the batter quickly before the batter has a chance to set. Cook 30 to 40 seconds until lightly browned.  Flip over and cook second side about 1 minute.  Slide the crepe onto a plate and repeat with the remaining batter, re-oiling the pan as necessary.  Stack crepes in-between wax paper.

Spread one heaping tablespoon of Blueberry Cream Cheese (or strawberry)on to crepe.  Fold crepe in half, then into quarters.  Top with Strawberry Sauce and whipped cream.
