Berry-Filled Cinnamon Crepes

Berry-Filled Cinnamon Crepes Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner
Use any fresh fruit to stuff these lightly spiced crepes--a combination of pineapple, mango, and strawberries, for example. As the fruit filling cooks, be sure to stir gently so the delicate berries don't break apart. Start the crepe batter first, as the batter needs to chill for an hour; this relaxes the gluten in the flour so the crepes will be tender. Stack leftover cooked and cooled crepes between wax paper or paper towels to prevent sticking, place in a large zip-top plastic bag, and refrigerate up to five days, or freeze up to one month.
