Tiramisu Crepes

Delicate crepes, filled with creamy mascarpone cheese and laced with vanilla and a hint of coffee liqueur, always make for a mouthwatering treat. They're special in every way. —Karen S. Shelton, Collierville, Tennessee

    22 crepes

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup club soda
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur or strong brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • Optional toppings: chocolate syrup, whipped cream and baking cocoa

Directions

  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, soda, butter, coffee and vanilla. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • For filling, in a large bowl, beat the cheeses and sugar until fluffy. Add liqueur and vanilla; beat until smooth. Spoon about 2 tablespoons filling down the center of each crepe; roll up. Top with chocolate syrup, whipped cream and cocoa if desired.

    Good taste, a bit heavy, and too sweet. The dense filling may have been under-whipped(??) I agree that the sugar could be drastically reduced.

    After reading the reviews, I cut the sugar in half. I do agree that the cream cheese and mascarpone was a bit heavy for crepes. Overall, (after reducing the sugar), it was a good recipe.

    Way too sweet and heavy. Combining cream cheese with mascarpone is too heavy. Maybe mascarpone with ricotta would be lighter.

    This is very good! A little on the sweet side though. I will cut the sugar in the filling in half the next time I make it.
