Blueberry Crepes

Had to share this recipe for delicious crepes and home made blueberry syrup. I got the crepe recipe from Julia's cookbook but I tweaked it a little. These are great for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner! And would be delicious as a dessert crepe with a little whipped or ice cream.

Crepe Recipe
-3/4 cup milk
-3/4 cup cold water
-3 egg yolks
-1 Tb granulated sugar
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 cup flour
-5 Tb melted butter (or oil)
-An electric mixer

Place the ingredients in a bowl in the order they are listed and then blend using an electric mixer at top speed for 1 minute. If bits of flour get stuck to the sides of the bowl scrape with a spatula and blend a few more seconds. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Cook on a non stick pan with a small amount of oil rubbed in with paper towel. Make them as thin as possible!

Blueberry syrup (or jam) recipe
-lots of blueberries
-fresh squeezed orange juice from one orange

Wash and unstem the berries then pour into a food processor and puree. Pour into a sauce pan with some sugar and fresh squeezed orange juice and heat over medium heat for about 20 minutes. (can use lemon juice too if you want the syrup tart). Stir together then pour through a strainer into jar. I've made this twice and the second time I didn't strain the sauce so it's a bit more like jam. Either way is really tasty.

See how thin they are? I think I see the face of Jesus in this one:
