Strawberry Filling for Crepes

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by LoydaP

I wanted to make strawberry crepes for my family, but couldn't find a recipe I liked. I experimented and came up with this: warm strawberries in sauce. Not too sweet, slightly tart. Enough for 4-5 crepes. I'd appreciate feedback and any possible improvements.

I thought this was perfect, LoydaP. I wouldn't change a thing. Your description is quite accurate; not too sweet, slightly tart. It thickened as it cooled. I used the sauce as a topping for plain yogurt. Wonderful.
