  • Prep Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Juice of six lemons
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 recipe Crepes
  • 1/4 cup butter

  • Using a handheld blender, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sour cream, 1/4 cup of the sugar, powdered sugar, juice of two lemons, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of the lemon zest. Beat until smooth.

    Fill each crepe with 3 tablespoons of the filling. Roll the crepes up tightly and place in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Carefully place the pan, back over the heat and flame the mixture, shaking the pan back and fourth several times. Continue to shake until the flame dies out.

    Lay two crepes in the center of each plate. Spoon the sauce over the top and serve. Add a dollop of the cream cheese mixture over the top and garnish with fresh fruit of your choice.
