Raspberry Crepes with Fresh Blueberry Sauce

Cream Cheese Filled Raspberry Crepes with Blueberry Sauce

Yields: 12-16 crepes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 10 minutes

Raspberry Crepes:
1 package Fleishmann’s® Simply Homemade Raspberry Flavored Yogurt Quick Bread mix
2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup milk
4 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Basic Crepes:
4 eggs
1-cup milk
1-cup flour
1 teaspoon of sugar

Put eggs and milk in food processor. Pulse several times. Add remaining ingredients. Heat omelet pan. Put enough batter in the skillet just to cover the bottom. Swirl the pan around to cover if you need to. As batter cooks it will become dry looking. Remove and add your filling.

Filling:

2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Vanilla Flavoring
½ cup blueberry or raspberry jam

Berry Sauce:
1 package (16 ounce) frozen berries
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon Argo® Cornstarch

Topping:
Powdered sugar

To make the crepes, combine quick bread mix, yogurt, milk, eggs and melted butter in a food processor or an electric mixer. Mix until smooth. Lightly butter a non-stick 8-inch skillet over medium heat. Using a one ounce ladle (or 2 tablespoons) pour batter into prepared pan,  rotating pan until batter covers the bottom. Cook until lightly brown, about one minute.   Remove crepe from pan and repeat with remaining batter.

To make the filling, beat the cream cheese with the sugar until smooth, add the jam and stir until well combined. Preheat oven to 300°F.

To assemble the filled crepes, place about 2 tablespoon of filling on each crepe in a line. Roll up the crepes and place them in a baking dish, seam side down. Bake for 10 minutes.

To make the berry sauce, combined all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve over cooked crepes and top with powdered sugar.
