Ingredients: 

  • 1 can of cherry pie filling (21 oz.)
  • 2 blocks of cream cheese, softened (8 ounces each)
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 2 tsp of vanilla
  • Whipped cream and mint for garnish
  • dessert crepes


Prepare dessert crepes in a 6-inch pan (this will yield 4-inch crepes) or simply trim your pre-made 8-inch crepes to 4 inches. Crepes may be served slightly warm or chilled.

Combine cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed with an electric mixer (or by hand) until the ingredients are combined and the mixture is creamy.


Assemble crepes: Lay each crepe on a flat working surface. Spread crepe with 2 tablespoons of the sour cream mixture. Follow with two tablespoons of pie filling. Roll up and transfer very carefully (a spatula works nicely) to the serving tray. Repeat with remaining crepes. Chill until ready to serve (up to 3 hours). Right before serving, garnish with whipped cream and a sprig of mint.

Yield: 8 servings (1 crepe roll each)
