French Cream Crepes With Raspberry Sauce

"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."

  1. 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.<br/>Made for PAC 2011 ~
  2. Crepe Cookery: Mable Hoffman is where I first saw this recipe. I still have the book! Was this the name of your book too, Buzymomof3 ?
  3. This was an excellent recipe Buzymomof3. Easy to make with super instructions. I made Nif's recipe #354483 (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


I love trying new recipes and once a month cooking (though I don't do it as often as I'd like). I am absolutely getting hooked on the tag games! Thank you to everyone who has tried my recipes, I hope you're liking them as much as my family does! My favorite magnet is one I got from my MIL that has a bunny hopping around saying I'm to busy to be organized. Story of my life. I have three great kids who are growing up way too fast, I'm not ready for empty nest syndrome. I married a wonderful man in 2009 who took me to Alaska on our honeymoon, It was one of the top two places I've always wanted to visit (not one he really had a desire to go to). Next year he's taking me to the other one he and I both want - Australia. Guess I like places that start with A's.
