Crêpes often consist of three components: the crêpes themselves, a filling, and a topping. Our recipe for Cherry-Berry Crêpes Magnifique has a wonderful cheese filling. Topped off with a beautiful red cherry-berry sauce, it makes it a perfect choice for Christmas or Valentine’s Day!

 

The first step in any crêpe recipe is making the batter. My husband loves to make crêpes, and he’s tried several recipes for the batter. We both agree … the recipe from Rue De L’Espoir is the hands-down winner! So, of course, The Rue’s batter recipe is the one included here.

The filling for Cherry-Berry Crêpes Magnifique is a simple mixture of cottage and cream cheeses, sweetened with a little sugar, and flavored with vanilla. The cherry-berry sauce is very delicious; and should you have any left over, it’s a terrific topping for angel food cake or ice cream.
