my first attempt at crepes



Ok, so these aren't the prettiest of crepes. But they tasted delicious and after all that work I wasn't going to let these go straight to the trash. I've been intrigued for some about with chia jam. I'd seen lots of recipes involving berries but never stone fruits and since apricot jam is one of my favourites, I gave it a go. Again, not the prettiest of jams but ah well. Now a note about the crepes, crepe making is not my forté. I think I made about 20 crepes and only 3 were semi photo-worthy. I just don't understand how to not make them stick! Or tear! I was inspired by my grandmother's Hungarian palacsinta, which are thin crepes rolled up with fillings like ricotta cheese, ground walnuts and apricot jam and then dusted with sugar. I think I may have disgraced her with these but in my defence these were my first attempt!



I'm going to link to the recipes I used because I think the instructions could get a little lengthy here.

For the crepes
For the apricot chia jam

To assemble:
1. Make the cheese filling: process 1 small container of ricotta cheese with 1/4 cup sugar or to taste.
2. Make the walnut filling: grind 1 cup walnuts with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
3. Spread a layer of cheese, then walnuts, and then the jam.
4. Dust with powdered sugar.
