8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Reserve 1 cup sliced strawberries for Strawberry Créme. Sprinkle sugar over remaining berries.
Prepare Strawberry Créme. Spread about 1 tablespoon filling on each crepe; roll up. Serve with sweetened strawberries.
Strawberry Créme: Combine cream cheese and confectioners sugar. Blend in strawberries.
Stir together flour and salt (sugar and nutmeg, if desired); set aside.
Blend together milk, eggs and melted butter. You can use an electric mixer, hand beater or blender. Add liquid to flour mixture all at once; beat until smooth.
Heat pan. Melt 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon butter in pan. If pan is well seasoned, cook 2 crepes before adding more butter.
Pour 2 tablespoons butter into pan and rotate quickly so batter covers bottom of pan. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute
Loosen edges and flip over. Cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more.
Stack crepes on ovenproof plate or baking dish to keep warm until you serve with the StrawaberryCréme and Fresh Berries.
Serve with a dollop of yogurt if desired.
