Dessert Crêpes with Berries

Sweet Crêpe Batter 3 large eggs ¾ cup unbleached, all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon table salt 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 cup whole milk ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted Berries 2 cups mixed fresh berries ¼ teaspoon orange zest 2 teaspoons granulated sugar Mascarpone Cream 8 ounces mascarpone ¾ cup heavy cream ¹∕³ cup superfine sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract pinch salt ¼ teaspoon orange zest 1 teaspoon unsalted butter confectioners’ sugar, for dusting


Insert the large metal chopping blade into the large work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. With the machine running, add the eggs to the work bowl. Stir together the flour, salt and sugar; add to the work bowl and pulse until just combined. With the machine running, add the milk, vanilla and butter together and process until homogenous. Transfer mixture to a container, cover and let rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight. Insert the small metal chopping blade into the small work bowl and add the berries, orange zest and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Process until completely puréed. Strain the purée through a fine mesh strainer and discard the seeds. Remove work bowl and reserve. Insert the large metal chopping blade into the medium work bowl and add the mascarpone cream ingredients; process until all are well incorporated, about 15 seconds. Remove work bowl and reserve. Prepare the crêpes. Place an 8-inch skillet over medium heat and preheat for 5 minutes. Once the pan is heated, add the butter. Once melted, wipe the butter around the pan with a paper towel. Add a scant 3 tablespoons of batter to the preheated pan. Working very quickly, move the batter around so it just coats the bottom. The pan should be coated thinly and evenly. After about 1 minute, when the crêpe is set and lightly browned, flip the crêpe, using a heatproof spatula, and cook for an additional minute on the second side. Reserve on a plate. Continue with the remaining batter, stacking the crêpes as you go. When all of the crêpes are prepared, cover plate with foil – to keep crêpes warm, place plate over the skillet containing some water over medium-low heat. To serve crêpes: spread 1½ tablespoons of mascarpone cream and about 1 tablespoon of the puréed berries on each crêpe and fold into thirds. Place three crêpes on each plate and dust with confectioners’ sugar and reserved berry purée.
