I first made this for Girl Scout Thinking Day in 92 or 93. I made over 300 of them! Somewhere along the line I lost the cookbook, but then a friend of mine had the exact same cookbook and let me have it! I'm posting it here so I don't loose it again. I made them again for a NYE party to ring in 2011, they're just as great as I remember them! The parts can be made the day before and assembled right before needed.

Very easy to make. They are a bit too sweet for me, I would prefer a cheese filling, but I made them for a party and everyone else thought they were wonderful. None were left which is always a good sign. They turned out perfect.

This was an excellent recipe Buzymomof3. Easy to make with super instructions. I made Nif's Basic Crepe Batter (for lovely homemade crepes- they worked beautifully with your recipe.) I really enjoyed the vanilla cream filling and the raspberry sauce. They were perfectly balanced and tasted amazing together. This was a lovely decadent breakfast for me. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I will make again. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Zingo Plus Round
