Ingredients

For the crepes

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Cooking spray

For the filling

  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese softened
  • 2 tbsp lemon curd
  • 1/4 cup cream

For the raspberry sauce

  • 6 oz fresh raspberries a few set aside for garnish
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Instructions

  • Mix all crêpe ingredients together and set batter aside. Batter should be about as thick as heavy whipping cream.
  • In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, vanilla, brown sugar, cream cheese, and lemon curd and mix until smooth.
  • Whip cream until it forms stiff peaks. Fold into ricotta mixture. Chill while you cook the crêpes.
  • Preheat a 9" nonstick pan to medium or medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray, then ladle in about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter while rotating pan around to quickly spread batter across entire pan (see video for demonstration). Quickly fill in any holes or gaps with a little more batter.
  • Cook for about 1-2 minutes or until edges start to brown. Lift up edges with a knife until you can get a spatula underneath, then flip with spatula. Cook an additional 30 seconds or so. Set crêpes aside.
  • In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add raspberries and sugar, leaving a few berries aside for garnishes. Cook and stir until berries break down and you have a nice syrup in the pan. Strain out seeds through a fine mesh sieve, if desired.
  • Spoon a line of ricotta mixture down the center of each crêpe, then roll up. Drizzle crêpes with raspberry sauce and top with additional berries.
  • Enjoy and feel fancy!
