These Lemon Cheesecake Crepes are a rich and vibrantly flavored brunch!
Crepes are one of those things that I don’t make all too often, but when I do, I like to go all out!
I like both sweet and savory crepes, but they’ve got to have bold flavor! I love that crepes are simple on their own making for endless possibilities when it comes to how to dress them up!
The last crepe recipe I posted were these savory Chicken and Spinach Crepes… SO GOOD! But lately, I’ve been craving some that are a little more on the sweet side and these Lemon Cheesecake Crepes definitely hit the spot!
One of the things I love most about crepes is that the batter is made in a blender and can be made up to 48 hours ahead of time, talk about ease!
Make the batter at night so you’re only 20 minutes away from these light crepes with an airy, mousse-like filling and drizzled with lemon icing and zest! I really don’t know if brunch gets any better than that!
