Strawberry Cheesecake Crepes

1 ½ C. Flour
1 T. Sugar
½ tsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. Salt
2 C. Warm Milk
2 Eggs
½ tsp. Vanilla
2 T. Melted Butter

Mix all ingredients together. Pour a small amount on a hot skillet and swirl it around to thin it out. Cook until nearly golden and then flip.

1 (4 ounce) Package Cream Cheese (softened)
1/4 C. Powdered Sugar
1 T. Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Lemon Zest
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 C. Heavy Cream (whipped)
Sliced Strawberries

1. Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla in a bowl.
2. Fold in the whipped cream.
3. Add 1/4 cup of the cream cheese mixture and some strawberries in the crepe, roll, sprinkle with powdered sugar, & serve.

Optional syrup:
1/2 C. Butter
¾ C. Buttermilk or Whip Cream
1 C. Sugar
½ tsp. Baking Soda
½-1 tsp. Almond Extract(depending on how you like it)

Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a pot. Turn stove on medium and stir until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil one minute. Remove from heat and add soda and flavoring. It will bubble up; just continue to stir and give it a few minutes for the 'fizz' to reduce before serving.
