Recipe For Gluten-Free Chestnut Crepes

Recipe Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups Sifted chestnut flour
1/8 tsp Salt
1 1/4 cup Milk
3 Large eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup Unsalted butter, melted

Cooking Directions:
1. Sift the chestnut flour into a bowl. Add the milk and beat to form a smooth paste. Whisk in the eggs and 1 tbsp butter until smooth. Pour 2 tbsp batter in the center of pan and swirl until the batter covers the entire surface.

2. Cook until almost dry on top and bottom is golden, about 30 seconds. Flip and cook about 30 seconds more. Transfer to platter and repeat until batter is used.

3. Serving suggestions: Fill with seasonal berries or ricotta. Brush with remaining melted butter, dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Imported from Italy, our gluten-free chestnut flour is an earthy, uniquely textured flour that would be
a fabulous addition to your pantry. Made from dry roasted chestnuts, this versatile flour can be incorporated into a range of recipes. Blending chestnut flour into pie crust yields a sweet, slightly nutty flavor while using chestnut flour in cakes, cookies and sweet breads adds density and heartiness.

Chestnut Flour in Italian Cuisine
Chestnut flour is prevalent in certain regions of Italy. Some Italians use chestnut flour to make crepes, which are called necci, and are served plain or with ricotta and honey. Castagnaccio is a subtly sweet chestnut cake from Tuscany made of only chestnut flour along with pine nuts, raisins and rosemary.

Chestnuts Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.
