Very Berry Vanilla Crepes with Vanilla Whipped Cream and Raspberry Sauce

Crepes are one of my favorite desserts and today I'm filling them with fresh local berries! Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and Philadelphia strawberry cream cheese are layered inside a golden vanilla crepe and then topped off with fluffy homemade vanilla whipped cream and sweet raspberry sauce! This delicious recipe has a few steps but the end result is so mouthwaterly scrumptious that it's worth it!

Ingredients

Makes 4 servings
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, tops cut off and sliced
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp +1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Philadelphia Strawberry Cream Cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix together milk, melted butter, 1 tbsp vanilla and egg yolk.
  2. Next add dry ingredients to the bowl: flour, salt, and 1 tbsp sugar.
  3. Mix until smooth and then place in a fridge to chill while you prepare the sauce.
  4. Next, mix all the fruit: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries in a bowl.
  5. Add 1 tbsp sugar and toss the fruit with the sugar.
  6. Chill the fruit until crepes are cooked.
  7. For the raspberry sauce: mix 1 cup raspberries and 1/2 cup orange juice in a small saucepan and heat on med-low and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  8. Using a strainer, pour the raspberry sauce into a bowl and discard solids.
  9. Next mix in 1 tbsp Philadelphia strawberry cream cheese into warm sauce and stir to combine.
  10. If the sauce has some lumps that won't melt you can strain the sauce in a bowl again and discard solids.
  11. Place the sauce in fridge to chill.
  12. For the vanilla whipped cream: use a chilled whisk and bowl.
  13. Pour heavy cream, powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla into chilled bowl and whisk until fluffy and thick, about 2 minutes.
  14. Chill until ready to serve.
  15. Remove crepe mix from fridge and heat a greased small skillet or crepe pan over medium to med-low.
  16. Add approx 1/2 cup of mix to the hot pan and swirl or use a spoon to spread the mix thin and cover the bottom of the pan.
  17. When edges of the crepe raise and bubbles appear in the center gently flip using a spatula.
  18. Cook the other side for about 30 seconds so it is golden brown.
  19. Transfer to a plate and cook remaining 3 crepes.
  20. Spread strawberry cream cheese on the inside of the crepe.
  21. Next add a couple spoonfuls of fruit in the middle of the crepe.
  22. Roll the crepe and top with a drizzle of raspberry sauce and a dollop or two of whipped cream. Sprinkle with extra berries.
  23. Repeat with remaining crepes and serve right away!
