Dessert Crepes

dessert crepes with cream cheese filling
I don’t make crepes very often. They aren’t that hard to make, just time consuming. I made a double batch and froze half, so I could get them out again in a few weeks for a nice dessert surprise. My boys, who granted aren’t used to food much fancier than McDonalds, were very appreciative of my efforts and said things like, “this is like restaurant food” and “we are eating like kings tonight.” It was sweet that they were excited.Dessert Crepes

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
Instructions

  4. Beat in the butter last.
  5. Cover the bowl and put in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  6. Filling:
  7. Beat with mixer until smooth.
  8. Put a few big spoonfuls onto the middle of a crepe, fold over both sides and top with sweetened berries (any kind is good: strawberries, raspberries or blueberries)
  9. Heat a small frying pan over medium.
  10. Put a small dab of butter in the bottom, swish it around, and ladle some crepe batter into the pan.
  11. Swish it around to cover the entire bottom of the pan and let cook until the top is no longer wet.
  12. Flip and cook for about 30 more seconds and then slide it onto a plate.
  13. Top that cooked crepe with waxed paper and repeat.
  14. After they are cooled, you can slip the entire stack into a gallon zip-lock bag and freeze, or you can use them immediately.

  1. >These look really easy and good. And how cute is it that your boys thought they were eating like kings??

    I'm thinking mom, that you should make these more often. Oh wait then they won't think its all that special……..you're right, every once in a while will keep them special.

  2. >YUMMY these sound delicious – I love crepes. I just posted a future Simply Delicious Sunday where I changed my crepe recipe into Swedish pancakes with lingonberries. We must be on the same wave length.

  3. The only crepe recipe to use. Just started making crepes. Used to drive 30 minutes one direction several days a week for crepes. Now I make my own! Easier than you can imagine. ..after the batter is mixed. Keep some frozen/refrigerated for easy preparation anytime.
