Strawberry Creme Crepes

I always feel like a French chef when I serve these pretty crepes. Although they take a little time to prepare, they're well worth the effort. My guests are always impressed. —Debra Latta, Port Matilda, Pennsylvania

  • Makes
    22 crepes

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Dash salt
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon red food coloring, optional
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs, butter and extract. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in water and lemon juice until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in extract and, if desired, food coloring. Cool. Add strawberries.
  • In a small bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth; fold in whipped cream. Spoon 2 rounded tablespoons of filling down the center of each crepe; roll up. Top with strawberry topping.

    These crepes looked and tasted wonderful! They take a bit of time but are well worth it. Make sure the cream cheese is nice and softened when mixing the filling ingredients. I did not have any strawberry extract so used vanilla extract instead and they turned out great. I sprinkled some blanched almonds on top for some added flavor and texture.

    Delicious! I made these crepes for breakfast on New Year’s Day for overnight guests and they were a huge hit! Absolutely delicious and worth the effort! I will be making these again for sure!

    These crepes are divine. They are a lot of work, but well worth it for a special occasion:) Try them with various kinds of fresh fruit.

    The crepes were awesome! I think my pan was too hot because I couldn't coat the pan with the batter, it was already halfway cooked I poured the batter in, so my crepes were thicker than they are supposed to be. The filling was DELICIOUS and we really enjoyed this recipe.

    These are absolutely delicious! My only complaint is the strawberry extract tastes fake to me so I leave that out. Everyone loves these when I make them, my 10 year old son loves helping me make the crepes. You must make these!

    This recipe is excellent! I just wouldn't add any sugar to the batter, since the filling is so sweet itselg. I scaled down the recipe half way and next time I will use 1/4 cup of confectioners sugar to make it less sweet, otherwise it's a very smooth and delicious dessert :)
