Strawberry and Cream Cheese Crepes


This recipe is a sweet dessert to share with your friends and family to enjoy!




For the crepes:

4 large eggs

⅓ cup butter

½ cup granulated sugar 

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 ¼ cups milk 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon salt


For the filling:

2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

4 ounces cream cheese

¼ cup powdered sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract 

1 can of whipped cream




For the crepes:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. 
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium heat. When the skillet is hot, lightly grease it with a little butter or cooking spray.
  3. Hold the handle of the skillet and as you pour a little bit of the batter in, tilt the skillet around in a circular motion to allow the batter to evenly coat the bottom of the pan, in a thin layer.
  4. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until the edges of the crepe curl slightly and the bottom of the crepe is lightly golden. Flip to the other side and cook for another 30 seconds.
  5. Adjust your heat between medium high until your crepes are cooking in about 30 seconds on each side. Re-grease your pan every few crepes, as needed.
  6. Remove crepe to a plate. Add more crepes to the plate as you cook them, and cover the plate with tinfoil to keep them warm.


For the filling:

  1. In a small bowl mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Spoon a thin layer of the filling into a crepe. Add some fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top and then roll it up.
  3. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar, extra strawberries and whipped cream, if you like.
