Blueberry Mascarpone Crepes

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon Grand Marnier liqueur
  • Pinch salt
  • 12 Crepes
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • Blueberry Sauce
  • Confectioners' sugar, garnish

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a large glass baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the mascarpone, cream cheese, sugar, egg yolks, zest, juice, Grand Marnier, and salt until smooth.
  • Place the crepes flat on a work surface. One at a time, spoon 2 tablespoons of the filling down the center, and top with a few fresh blueberries. Roll the sides of the crepe up and over the filling and place in the baking dish, seam side down. Bake until the filling is warmed through and slightly puffed, 10 minutes.
