Tiramisu Crepes

Does anyone else struggle to make crepes as much as me? I love crepes. Especially with Nutella and strawberries. I used to make them all the time. I’d make a batch of batter then I’d cook up a couple each evening and eat them with Nutella and strawberries. This was in high school and I could make a decent crepe. Now? No luck. They just never turn out good. They either burn, or are too thick, or stick to the pan. It is always something else. I am going to make it my personal goal this year to make consistently good crepes.

Luckily for me, you can buy crepes in the stores. Admittedly, they are not as good. But, they are better than the ones I had been making. At least the store bought ones are edible. Mine were going straight from the pan to the garbage! If you have any tricks for making crepes let me know. These tiramisu crepes are really just a riff on tiramisu. All you diehard tiramisu eaters will probably challenge me on this one. They are simply crepes stuffed with tiramisu cream and sprinkled with cocoa powder then served with coffee on the side if desired. Call them what you want though. Vanilla flavored whipped cream with mascarpone cheese rolled in a crepe and sprinkled with cocoa powder -really who cares what it is called. So, call them what you like but I just know you will enjoy them!

    These crepes look BEYOND amazing. As far as “tips” I just use a nonstick pan, put barely any batter into it and quickly swirl it around so that it spreads out before it has time to get too thick, you could also try one of those fancy “crepe-spreaders”… but I think saving time by using the store-bought variety gives you extra time to make your delicious fillings! :)
