These delicious crepes have a cream cheese filling and a sauce of strawberries and liqueurs.A wonderful and impressive ending to a great meal. Originally from an April 1978 Bon Apetit magazine.Both the crepes and the filled crepes can be made ahead. I've also allowed the crepes to come to room temperature after refrigerating them, then spooned the hot sauce over them to make serving easier.
