Ingredients:
Crust:
2 1/3 cups AP Flour
2/3 cup Vegetable Shortening
1 heap tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 – 3 tsps Water
1 tsp Salt
zest of 1 Lemon (optional, but recommended)
Honey thinned with a splash of water

Filling:
2 pounds of Strawberries (while you may not need this many, you may have tiny grabbing fingers)
3 heavy tbsp of Sugar
juice of one Lemon
pinch of Salt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional, but recommended)

Vegan Crepes With Lemon Curd & Blueberries

Crepes are so popular in France that there is a day that honors them. Every February 2, the French celebrate la Chandeleur, a holiday marking the end of the Christmas period, by eating crepes. Not to be left out, the U.S. has a “National Crepes Suzette Day” on May 6, but you can make any day a celebration with this recipe from Sarah McMinn, author of the ebook, In the Raw: Small Indulgences for The Sweet Life.

Ingredients:
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 cup Non-dairy Milk (I used soy)
2 tbsp Canola Oil
2 tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla or Almond Extract
1/2 cup cold Water
Oil for frying
1 cup of Lemon Curd
1 pint of Blueberries
