4 Crepes – premade or purchased

1 Cup of heavy whipping cream

1 Tsp. confectioner sugar

1 Tsp. Tahitian pure vanilla extract

Lemon Curd (a good quality store bought variety)

Fresh Berries

Powdered sugar, fresh flowers and lemon zest to garnish


1. Make whipped cream by mixing heavy cream, one teaspoon of sugar and vanilla extract in a chilled bowl.
2. Take your crepe and spread about two teaspoons of good quality lemon curd in a thin layer over each crepe.
3. Put about ¼ cup of the whipped cream down the center of each crepe. Top with berries of your choice.
4. Fold over the crepe to cover the cream and berries filling.
5. Meanwhile, heat a couple of tablespoons of the lemon curd with a splash of water in the microwave for 10 seconds. Stir so that it is a looser consistency (more like a syrup).
6. Top each crepe with a drizzle of the lemon syrup, sifted powdered sugar and some lemon zest. Serve with fresh berries on the side and garnish with an edible flower or a sprig of mint.

NOTE: This is an all time favorite “cheat dessert”. Everyone needs to have one fast, elegant dessert in their arsenal ready to dazzle guests. Whether you are rushed, tired, overwhelmed with all the components of a big dinner or just want the most fabulous, light and airy crepe for dessert, this is it.

I have found some amazing store bought ingredients that I use on a regular basis. I keep them on hand so I’m ready to whip up this dessert in a minute. I use store bought crepes and a really good store bought lemon curd. Make no mistake, I make both from scratch, but this is my secret weapon. If you make your own crepes and/or curd, that’s great. But if you can’t, this is a great go-to dessert. I recommend Melissa’s pre-made crepes (I’ve purchased them at Sprouts and Gelsons supermarkets). They are thin and delicious. I also really like Dickenson’s Lemon Curd. I’ve found that brand at multiple high-end stores but it is really good and can be used for all kinds of desserts. When in doubt, you can buy both online.
