Please excuse the bright photo! My camera skills are clearly not as good as my cooking skills. Anyways, I have a great fall recipe for you! I love all the things you can make with that leftover pumpkin puree (because I never seem to use an entire can of pumpkin in ANY recipe…I always have extras in my fridge this time of year) Its sort of like a pumpkin cheesecake wrapped up in a crepe! And, crepes are super easy to make–don’t think you can’t!
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filled Crepes
- Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling
- 2 oz cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup pureed pumpkin
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanillaCrepes My mom's recipe--can't make one better!
- 2 eggs2 cups + 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
- pinch of salt
For the filling -
Whip cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Stir in pumpkin, cinnamon and vanilla. Serve with warm crepes.For the crepes -
Whisk wet ingredients together. Add in the dry ingredients and whisk to combine (try to get the lumps out, but its ok if there are a few). Refrigerate batter for an hour or more. In hot, lightly greased fry pan, pour batter to cover the bottom in a thin layer. Flip when top of crepe looks dry. Fry for 15 seconds more and remove. Repeat the process until batter is gone. Crepes are great with the pumpkin filling mentioned above or some other favorite ways are: fruit and cream, chocolate hazelnut spread, lemon juice and sugar or jam. Savory crepes are equally delicious, too!
