1 cup of heavy whipped cream

Slice each biscuit in half horizontally. Place the bottom half on a plate. From there layer everything. Start by adding a tablespoon of our
irresistible strawberry jam to the cut side of the biscuit. Next add, a dollop of whipped cream and the top half of the biscuit. Finish the shortcake off with another dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry.
For the Crepes:
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted, plus more for cooking
For the Filling:
1/2 lb. cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 lb. farmer's cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. orange or lemon extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pucker up berry
In a blender, combine the eggs, milk, flour, salt and the 2 tbsp. melted butter. Blend for 10 seconds, then scrape down the sides and blend for 20 seconds more.
Place a 6 to 8-inch crepe pan or a small nonstick fry pan over medium heat and brush with a thin film of melted butter. Use a ladle to quickly pour in 1/4 cup of the batter. Swirl the pan to coat the bottom with the batter. Cook until the bottom is golden and the top is just set, about 45 seconds. Using a nonstick spatula, transfer the crepe to a plate, browned side down; do not cook the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the pan with more butter between each crepe.
In bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese, farmer’s cheese, sugar, egg, lemon or orange extract and the vanilla until smooth.
Line a platter with parchment paper or wax paper. Place each crepe, browned side up, in front of you, and place 2 generous tbsp. of the filling in the center. Fold the 2 outer edges toward the center so they meet over the filling. Pat gently to flatten. Fold the top and bottom in to overlap slightly in the center. Place, seam side down, on the platter.
Note: If not cooking crepes immediately, cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours (bring back to room temperature for 10 minutes before cooking).
Preheat an oven to 200°F.
To Cook the Crepe:
Place a large fry pan over medium-low heat and melt 1 tbsp. of the butter. When the butter foams, add 4 or 5 crepes, seam side down; do not crowd the pan. Sauté until golden, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook until golden, about 3 minutes. Keep the crepes warm in 200 degree F preheated oven, loosely covered with aluminum foil, and cook the remaining crepes. Arrange 2 or 3 warm crepes on each plate. Top with a generous spoonful of jam and spoon a dollop of sour cream over preserves and serve.
Makes approximately 8-12 crepes(depending on what size pan you use.
