Cherry Filled Crepes

Sauce or no sauce, that is the question

Sauce or no sauce, that is the question

This is another simple fruit filling that can be used for many different desserts. Or stuffed into crepes. For another fruit option and the basic crepes recipe go here.

The sauce can be spooned over the crepes before baking, or they can be dusted with cinnamon or powdered sugar.

Cherry Filling

  • 2 cups pitted chopped cherries
  • 1 oz sambuca
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup halved cherries mixed with 1 tsp sugar
  • Batch of crepes

In a sauce pan add chopped cherries, sambuca, sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and then simmer until thick. Remove from heat. On each crepe place 5-6 cherries and one tablespoon sauce in center and then roll up. Place each rolled up crepe in a greased baking dish. Continue until out of crepes. Top with more cherry syrup, cinnamon or powdered sugar and bake at 350 degrees until crepes are golden brown. Serve hot.

    I would add some home made ricotta as a filling (or just plain cream cheese with a touch of yogurt to loosen it up). Mmmmmmmm!

    Yum, these look divine! I’ll say ‘yes’ to these any day and bring on the sauce!

  4. I love crepes, but I’ve never been a huge cherry eater. But this looks really good. I might have to try it out.

  5. Very beautiful indeed.

    I just bought my yearly supply of pitted tart cherries. Maybe I’ll try making these crepes this year. They sure look cherry worthy. 🙂
