My 17-year old son calls me a gourmet cook whenever I make his favorite crepes. Sometimes, for a change, I substitute apple pie filling for the cherries and top the golden crepes with warm caramel sauce.
I came to North America from Denmark decades ago, and my mother used to make these pancakes for me and my siblings while growing up. Today, my children and grandchildren love these, so I often have to double the recipe.—Lise Thomson, Magrath, Alberta
Corn bread crepes hold a creamy, ham-and-cheese filling in this special brunch item. I appreciate that they're made the night before. In the morning, I just pop them in the oven and start brewing the coffee!—Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan
Fresh lilacs are a great addition to these crepes. They add beautiful color and will impress any guest. Make these in the spring when lilacs are in bloom.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
Milk, butter and cottage cheese combine delightfully in these blintzes. When I was a child, my mother served them often for Sunday brunch or for dessert, and they tasted so good.—Lauren Kargen, Buffalo, New York
