Crepes With French Vanilla Cream Cheese Filling

Growing up one of my favorite things my mom would make us for breakfast was crepes! To this day crepes are one of my favorites! When we were staying at the Paris in Vegas, they had the most divine crepes there! Sigh.....I'd kill for one right now. Any who, my mom made really good crepes too, so I made my family some crepes with my mom's recipe for breakfast & tried out a new recipe for a really yummy filling! Wouldn't this be a fun Valentine's Day breakfast surprise for your family! You could add some Valentine sprinkles to the top! Enjoy!

1 1/2 C. flour
1 TB. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 C. milk
2 eggs
2 TB. melted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1. Mix all ingredients together with a hand mixer.

2. Spray skillet with non-stick spray & then heat up.

3. Scoop about 1/3 C. of the batter into skillet. Pick up skillet & tip skillet side to side, top to bottom until batter covers entire bottom of pan in somewhat of a round shape, set back on heat until sides start to pull away.

4. Carefully slide spatula around edges and then underneath crepe & flip over in skillet.

5. Cook this side for about 1 minute or until done. Slide out onto plate

6. Fill with jelly & powdered sugar, butter & powdered sugar, fruit, caramel sauce, mini marshmallows, whatever your pleasure!

french vanilla cream cheese filling:

1-8oz. cream cheese at room temperature

1-8oz. container cool whip

2 small pkgs instant french vanilla pudding

3 C. milk

1. Mix cream cheese in a blender until smooth. Mix puddings in separate bowl with 3 C. milk for 2 minutes. Add to cream cheese. Fold in cool whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve. This makes a lot! Next time I'll cut the recipe in half.

chocolate mousse:
1 large pkg. instant choc. pudding. Mix as directed on box.
1 quart whipping cream (whipped with some sugar & vanilla until stiff) fold into chocolate pudding. Chill until ready to serve.
Everybody had one like this one above, rolled up & then put fruit on top! For their second one, they all went back to the jelly with powdered sugar in them. Mmmmmmmmm!
