Raspberry Key Lime Crepes

Key lime juice turns cream cheese into the refreshing filling for these berry crepes. Sometimes, I even pipe the sweet filling into phyllo-dough cones that I bake separately. –Wolfgang Hanau of West Palm Beach, Florida

    I love this recipe but am not a big fan of tofu. I substitute lowfat ricotta cheese in equal amounts. It is so good. I plan to make them for a Mother's day brunch

    I agreed with all of the other reviews and did not want to use tofu, so I substituted one container of Marscapone cheese and they turned out delicious, I also made a raspberry sauce to pour on top which was very good.

    simply leave the Tofu out. i make them all the time with different fruits and fillings and they turn out great. Also go on-line to recipes and get one for crepes, they are easy and simple and experiment with the fillings to whatever you like and tastes good to you.

    I agree, would try if there's a sub for tofu. Anyone have an alternative??

    I would like to know too about something different than tofu.

    I might make it if you can suggest a substitute for tofu.
