Strawberry Cheesecake Crepes

Strawberry Cheesecake Crepes underthesticks.net

 

Homemade, thin vanilla crepes oozing with delicious strawberry cheesecake filling, and topped with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar. These strawberry cheesecake crepes aren’t gluten free. They aren’t low calorie. And they sure as heck aren’t organic. But they ARE so unbelievably good. Agree that these are worth the calories? Read on for the recipe for these delicious, and easy-to-make treats that will make any brunch twenty times better.

Ingredients:
Crepes:
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 cup milk
-1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 cup water
-4 tablespoons butter

Filling:
-5 oz. vanilla Greek yogurt
-1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
-1 cup strawberries, diced
-1/8 cup brown sugar

Topping:
-1 strawberry, sliced
-Powdered sugar to taste

You’ll also need…
-Non-stick pan
-Non-stick spatula
-Butter (for grease)
-Large mixing bowl
-Cutting board for berries
-Mixing bowl for filling
-Whisk
Note: I initially considered using my KitchenAid mixer, but decided against it. There’s no heavy duty mixing required, and clean-up is easier without it.

Directions:

-Whisk milk, melted butter, water, vanilla, and eggs in large bowl. Whisk until yolks are completely broken.
-Slowly sift in flour and salt. Stir until no clumps are visible.
-Cover mixing bowl and place in fridge for thirty minutes. While the batter is chilling, you can work on the filling.

-Mix cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and sliced strawberries. If you want the filling to be more “liquidy”, add more yogurt. If you’d like it to be fluffier, add more cream cheese. Add brown sugar when mixed.
-Cover bowl and chill in fridge while dough is being cooked.

-Heat non-stick pan at medium heat. Add butter to grease.
-Pour dough on pan. Cook each side for approximately 30 seconds, or until fully cooked.
**Remember, crepes are different than pancakes because they are thin! It took me a couple tries to find my desired thickness and diameter, so don’t be afraid to play around. Also, don’t make the mistake of forgoing the butter on the pan. No matter how great your non-stick pan is, it needs butter! I poured dough in a small cup before putting it on the pan to make sure I had the right size/thickness each time. Pour it in a circular motion from the inside out to “fill in” gaps.**

-Take filling out from fridge. Stuff cooled crepes with desired amount and roll. Top with strawberries and powdered sugar and enjoy!

Looking for a spin on this recipe? You could also substitute blueberries for the filling or omit the berries inside and top with bananas, peaches, strawberries, etc. The possibilities are endless. Happy cooking!

Lilly Pulitzer Giveaway

Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ve heard of the craze that is Lilly Pulitzer for Target. I’ve been a fan of LP for years (thanks Maddy!), but LP’s collaboration with Target was not only more aligned with my preferred price points, but also more accessible considering there are several Target stores within minutes of me, and no LP!

LP+T’s launch was an absolute mad house. LP lovers crashed the website, and when it finally came back to life, it was sold out within minutes. People lined up for hours and were faced with a “Black Friday” kind of situation; I heard reports of fighting, screaming, name-calling, and tons of item stealing. Items were up on eBay within the hour for ridiculous prices.

I wasn’t able to participate in the launch day madness that morning due to rugby, but I headed to Target that evening to see what I could snag. I was able to purchase items and sold them online at decent prices to online friends across the country…a relocation of goods, if I must.

I have made online friends who aren’t able to get any items in their stores (LP is MUCH more popular in the east and south than it is here in Southern California), and the hunt for satin dresses, shifts, and mugs, has taken over my life. I probably visited about ten different Targets a total of twenty times. I’m fairly certain the Customer Service reps at my local Target recognize me by now. I loved the rush of finding an item I wanted, as well as the ability to help fulfill others’ wish lists. It was tiring, and I was often discouraged, but somehow I did it. (I had to step back and remind myself that these are just “items”, so luckily I didn’t get too crazy!) After a ton of buying, selling, and trading, I was finally able to get my hands on the most coveted items.  I’ll do a haul on everything I got soon, don’t worry!

It took me almost a month to get everything I wanted, so now it’s my turn to help YOU all! I’m giving away this adorable LP+T Happy Place Rafia Tote. You can fit a spare pair of clothes, a towel, some books, and snacks for the beach in this gorgeous bag! Head over to my Facebook to be entered to win.

 

P.S. If you comment on this with your favorite item for the LP+T line, you get an extra entry!! :) Good luck!
