Fresh Strawberry Crepes

During the hot summer months, my husband and I like to eat foods that are light on the stomach.  I coudln't resist sharing this recipe I found on Weight Watchers.  You don't have to be a member of WW's online community to be able to get a sample of their recipies.  In my old blog, I wrote how I haven't had much success with WW (but love the articles and recipes!).  I think it's becuase I never really tried.  It was always to easy for me to cheat.  I know it works, my cousins Barbara and Stephanie are having excellent success on WW.  

Back to the recipe...  Fresh Strawberry Crepes!

Fresh Strawberry Crepes

POINTS® Value: 3
Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 32 min

5 large egg white(s)
1/8 tsp table salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 cup(s) fat-free skim milk
1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
8 spray(s) cooking spray
1 pound(s) strawberries, hulled and sliced very thin (about 3 cups)
1/4 cup(s) powdered sugar

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites, salt, vanilla extract, melted butter, milk and flour until just combined.
2. Coat an 8- or 9-inch skillet with cooking spray; set over medium heat. When pan is hot, add 1/4 cup of batter and tilt skillet to cover entire bottom of pan with a thin layer of batter. Cook for 2 minutes; flip over. Top with about 1/3 cup strawberries; cook for 2 minutes more. Fold crepe over and slide onto a serving plate; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining ingredients; sprinkle with sugar. Yields 1 crepe per serving.

To see if the pan is hot, add a few droplets of water – if they sizzle, the pan is ready.
These crepes can be filled with any berries you have on hand – or spread them with fruit preserves.
