Strawberry Cream Filled Crepes

Strawberry Cream Filled Crepes are like a very thin pancake filled with a yummy cream filling and topped with strawberry topping. They can be served for breakfast or dessert. They are easy to make and yummy to eat.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup flour
  • 3 ounces cottage cheese
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon of powder sugar
  • 1 ½ frozen strawberries
  • ½ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave. I use the defrost setting for about 2 minutes. This method allows for the butter to melt, but not get too hot. You want to do this step first to allow it to cool down before using it.
  2. Pour the eggs into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the milk into the bowl with the eggs and mix until combined.
  4. Add the flour slowly until the mixture is mixed thoroughly. Once the mixture is combined pour in the cool melted butter. The butter must be cool, otherwise it will cook the mixture. Set the mixture aside and make your filling.
  5. In another mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, cottage cheese, and powder sugar. Mix the mixture until it’s well combined. This will be the filling for the crepes.
  6. For the topping, in a sauce pan combine the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Cook under medium heat and continually stir the mixture, once the strawberries have defrosted smash them with a spoon. This will allow the strawberry juices to release and thicken the sauce. Once you have smash the strawberries, boil for a couple of minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool.
  7. Brush a non-stick skillet with butter. Over medium heat allow the butter to heat. Add about 4 tablespoons of batter to the pan, swirl and tilt the pan until the batter coats the pan. Cook the batter until its golden brown, about one minute. With a spatula flip the crepe and cook the other side until it browns. Remove the crepe from the pan and repeat.
  8. Fill the crepes with the cream filling, pour the strawberry topping on top, and serve.
