    Ingredients  (to save time you can use store bought crepes)

    • BATTER:
    • 3 eggs
    • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 5 teaspoons butter, melted
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    • FILLING:
    • 1 cup (8 ounces) Mascarpone cheese
    • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
    • 3 to 4 teaspoons minced fresh basil
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

    • STRAWBERRY TOPPING:
    • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons orange juice
    • 1 teaspoon strawberry or vanilla extract
    • Dash salt
    • 4 teaspoons butter, divided

    Directions

    • In a blender, combine the batter ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
    • Meanwhile, for filling, in a small bowl, combine the cheese, confectioners' sugar, basil and lemon juice. Gently fold in strawberries. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    • For topping, in a small bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, orange juice, extract and salt. Let stand for 30 minutes.
    • Melt 1 teaspoon butter in an 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour about 1/4 cup batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
    • Spoon filling over crepes; roll up. Serve with strawberry topping. Yield: 8 crepes.
