Quark's Uttaberry Crêpes

— Chef's Note —

"Mister Homn, I saw some uttaberries along the path. Be a dear and pick some for dessert." - Lwaxana Troi

You don't have to refrigerate crêpe batter, but it does result in a more nicely colored crêpe that comes out of the pan easier. You can also omit the cream filling and serve the crêpes with a simple uttaberry sauce consisting of 1 3/4 cups blueberries, 1/4 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons water.
