CREAM CHEESE CREPE FILLING — Sweetened cream cheese combines with vanilla, whipped cream, and a hint of lemon in this delicious crepe filling that’s perfect for breakfast or dessert.
Since I shared my crepe recipe with you earlier this week, it seemed fitting to share my family’s favorite Cream Cheese Crepe Filling with you today!
This recipe is so simple, but so delicious, and it’s my go-to filling when it comes to serving crepes for either breakfast or dessert. I mean, I could eat this stuff by the spoonful, but it’s even better rolled up in a homemade crepe and topped with some fresh berries.
Thank you for the recipe, it turned out really good. My family loves it so much. ~ Rose
Strawberries are our favorite thing to pair with this filling, but the possibilities are endless–peaches, blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas, or a combination of fruit all work.
Just imagine your favorite no-bake cheesecake and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what this crepe filling tastes like.
Which makes it perfect for dessert crepes, of course, and even better for special occasion breakfasts like holidays, birthdays and Mother’s Day.
And since it’s made with just a handful of simple ingredients that you probably have on hand right now, you can whip up this crepe filling in a manner of minutes.
It can also be made a day or two ahead and kept in the refrigerator, and since crepes can also be made a few days ahead (or even further ahead and frozen), you can do most of the prep work for cream cheese filled crepes ahead of time.
At my house we serve crepes with this sweet, creamy filling and fresh fruit for our Christmas morning breakfast, but that doesn’t stop us from indulging throughout the year.
In fact, this is also one of our favorite “breakfast for dinner” treats!
If you’re looking for the perfect crepe filling, look no further than this Cream Cheese Crepe Filling. It’s sure to become your favorite way to serve crepes!

Who Dished It Up First: This is an original recipe.
Best cream cheese soup, I’ve ever made. It was too thin to use as a crepe filling. Please stay out of the kitchen or at least, stop posting recipes.
Obviously you did something wrong. This turned out wonderful. Even if the recipe didn’t turn out for you, why be so disrespectful? There’s no need.
Jamie K Coffee
Mine came out perfect. Thick and delicious. I doubt Billy beat his heavy cream enough. This is a fabulous recipe.
Mine turned out amazing too, I used this recipe with 30 college students at a cooking workshop and everyone was able to work it our easily
Thank you! That is so great!
you probably either overwhipped or underwhipped your cream or didn’t fold it in…
Had to of added too much cool whip or something
Thank you for the recipe, it turned out really good, my family loves it so much, i put a little sugar on mine, and used heavy (whipping cream) but just because we have sensitive teeth, but this recipe is delicious perfect for crepes filling. I didn’t have any trouble at all. Thank you so much i will definitely recommend this recipe and i will make it again!
This turned out amazing! The first time I had enough for an army…it was me and the hubs, the second time I cut it all in half. Just perfect for the hubs, 2 teenage boys, and I

This is exactly what I have been looking for! Will make it this weekend with rasberry creapes for our Senior Park Brunch!
I would strongly recommend cutting the sugar down to 1/4 to 1/2 cup. This was extremely sweet. Great texture, though!
Can it be used for cake fillings?

Loved this recipe. I used orange extract instead of vanilla. I folded my crepes into quarters, using the cream cheese filing in the larger first fold and orange marmalade in the second fold. Everyone at my workplace loved them.
I have made this multiple times, I use tub cool whip instead of whipping my own, it’s just as delicious, this has become a fav in the household, I’ve been using this recipe since March of 2022, and it’s perfect every time! I love this filling and won’t use any other recipe.
Made this recipe this morning. Turned out perfect, easy and delicious! Will be making it again. Thank you
