  • (reserve syrup)
  • Water
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Step 1

Sift flour and salt together into mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly
with eggs to form a thick paste. Gradually add milk, whisk until
smooth—DO NOT OVER BEAT. Batter will have the consistency
of thick cream. Cover bowl and refrigerate 2 hours or
more (overnight.) Brush a hot crepe pan, 6½ to 7 inches in diameter,
with butter or oil. Pour in 1½ to 2 Tbsp batter, tipping
pan to coat it with a thin layer. When edge of crepe starts to
brown, turn crepe and brown other side. Repeat process, adding
oil or butter as needed.
If you over beat the batter, it became foamy and if you cooked crepes with
foamy batter you ended up with lots of tiny air holes in the crepes. Also, after
the batter was strained it was to sit in the walk-in for several hours so that all
the air would rise to the top and be eliminated. You're correct—it was
strained to assure no lumps.
Prepare Filling by beating cheese with sour cream. Mix in
sugar, lemon juice and almond extract to blend thoroughly.
Prepare sauce by measuring cherry syrup and adding enough
water to make 1 cup. Combine with sugar and lemon juice,
bring to a simmer over medium heat. Mix cornstarch with ¼
cup water. Stir cornstarch mixture into simmering syrup mixture.
Cook and stir about 5 minutes until smooth and slightly
thickened. Stir in cherries, brandy, and almond extract; remove
from heat and set aside.
Spread about 2 tsp filling on half of each crepe. Fold each in
half, then in half again to form a triangle. Place on lightly buttered
baking sheet; heat 3-4 minutes in a 350º F oven just to
heat through. (You can also microwave these for 22 seconds.)
Place 2 filled crepes overlapping slightly on warmed individual
serving plate. Spoon hot cherry mixture—if necessary, reheat
slowly, stirring gently— over each serving. Sprinkle with
almonds. Serve immediately.
