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.
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!
Be sure to save this Cream Cheese Crepe Filling recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
