Pumpkin Crepes

Pumpkin crepes

Today is one of those days when I just want to forget about everything, when I just don’t want to care… But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially when you have dessert for breakfast. Yeah, that’s the spirit of a rebel, LOL. I had some leftover pumpkin filling that I used for empanadas so I decided to make crepes and mix some nutella with a little bit of milk and drizzle it over them (more like bathe them in it). They were so good that my I felt better immediately. Here’s the recipe for the pumpkin filling and click here for the crepe recipe (I used all-purpouse flour only for these crepes) The inspiration for these crepes came from the ones we always get at the Pumpkin Show.

Not bad for at all for a breakfast, but next time I’ll eat it as a dessert. It was so delicious!

¡Buen provecho!
