Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced, divided
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, water and butter. In another bowl, mix flour and salt; add to egg mixture and mix well. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
  2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat. Stir batter. Fill a 1/4-cup measure halfway with batter; pour into center of pan. Quickly lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn crepe over and cook until bottom is cooked, 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing pan as needed. When cool, stack crepes between pieces of waxed paper or paper towels.
  3. For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and zest, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in 2 cups berries and the whipped cream. Spoon about 1/3 cup filling down the center of each crepe; roll up. Garnish with remaining berries and, if desired, additional confectioner's sugar. Cover and refrigerate or freeze remaining crepes in an airtight container, unfilled, for another use.

Strawberry Crepes Tips

Can you fold and stack strawberry crepes instead of rolling them up?

If you're having a hard time rolling up this dessert crepe recipe, you can fold them instead. Fill and fold in half, fold again and then fold again once more to create a triangular-shaped crepe. You can stack them on top of each other without smearing the filling. (This is a great technique for storing them in the fridge!)

Can you use frozen strawberries instead of fresh to make strawberry crepes?

We recommend using fresh strawberries for this recipe. If you have extras on hand, use them up in these delicious fresh strawberry recipes.

How can you make strawberry crepes your own?

There are so many tasty ways to level up your strawberry crepes! Drizzle chocolate sauce, add Nutella to the filling, top with powdered sugar or serve with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.
