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.
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
Each year for my husband's birthday I make him a different lemon cake (a tradition started by his mother). A couple years ago I made a Lemon Crepe Cake and it was really good. This spring I added fresh strawberries and the cake was fabulous! I like to make the crepe batter and lemon curd the night before and assemble the next morning.—Lora Roth, Seneca, South Carolina
I usually make the crepes, filling and sauce for this recipe the day before. The next morning, I assemble them for baking and warm the sauce. It might seem complicated, but it's not difficult, and the results are so worth it! —Patricia Prescott, Manchester, New Hampshire
Caramel and apple are such a popular flavor combination. When combined with store-bought crepes that are filled with a rich cream cheese mixture, you have a superb dessert or brunch item.—Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan
