La Cutizza, Italian Crepes, is a poor man’s dessert prepared throughout the region of Lombardy. It was the most popular dessert at my Trattoria. I offered it with Nutella, gelato, or fresh berries. My daughter Remington’s favorite combo as a child was a mixture of Nutella, vanilla gelato, and fresh berries! On the other hand, my husband prefers his La Cutizza filled with strawberry preserves and topped with Grand Marnier-infused whipped cream. It reminds him of his days living in Strasbourg, France.
Be creative! This basic recipe is an easy and delicious way to create sweet or savory crepes. Serve with a chilled glass of bubbly Centanni Passerina Spumante.
