Buckwheat crepes with pumpkin ricotta
- 6 Tbsp. Minerva Dairy Maple Butter, melted
- 2 Tbsp. Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter
- 1 1/2 Cups Buckwheat Flour
- 1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1 1/2 Cups Baker's Whole Milk
- 3 Eggs
- Confectioners Sugar for dusting
- 1 Cup Fresh Ricotta Cheese
- 1 Cup Canned Pumpkin
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Extract
- In a blender, combine the milk, eggs, sugar and salt.
- Next, pour in the flours and blend.
- Finally, slowly add the melted butter and blend till smooth.
- Place in the refrigerator and store for 2 hours or overnight.
- Make the crepes by taking a little of the Amish roll butter and just coating a hot skillet with a bit and place 1/4 cup of the batter in the center of the pan and turn the pan and roll the batter to make a thin coating all over the pan.
- The edges will pull away - carefully flip and cook the other side.
- Place about 2 Tbsp (more if rolling the crepes) of the filling on the crepes and fold into triangles.
- Powder 3 filled crepes with Confectioners Sugar and serve immediately.
