      There’s something so decadently European about indulging in a crepe filled with ripe and succulent seasonal fruits. Reminiscent of lingering late breakfasts at open-air cafes, the mouthwatering flavor and light, airy texture of a crepe can be easily duplicated right in your own kitchen. Hickory Farms is sharing some of our favorite crepe recipes below with our valued customers. Creamy Strawberry Crepes Sun-kissed strawberries are the star of this perennial brunch favorite. The secret to creating the perfect crepe is making the egg batter uniformly thin on a well-oiled griddle set to medium heat. Lightly brown one side, then flip, and set aside while you blend the cream cheese with the powdered sugar. The sliced strawberries should be added inside with a creamy filling. Make sure you reserve a dollop of cream cheese filling and a few berries to top the rolled crepes. Then, dust lightly with powdered sugar. Peaches ‘n Cream Crepes  Make the most of summer’s bounty with our Summer Fruit Collection, which includes sweet and juicy peaches, plums and nectarines. This healthy recipe features egg substitutes, so people watching their cholesterol can still indulge in this rich treat.
