Strawberry Crepes with Cream Cheese Filling
We have crepes on a fairly regular basis in our home. They are so easy to make and my kids LOVE them. They love rolling them up on their own, adding fun toppings, and covering them in mountains of whipped cream. Of all the different crepes we make, these strawberry crepes are the overwhelming favorite crepes in my family and it’s easy to see why. They are delicious! The strawberry cream filling is rich and decadent and when topped with fresh strawberries, these crepes can’t be beat!
What is a Crepe?
For those of you not familiar with crepes, they are basically really thin pancakes that are often folder over or rolled up and eaten. The word “crêpe” is of French origin and is pronounced krep” (rhymes with ‘step’) if you are from France or “krape” (rhymes with ‘grape’) if you are from the U.S.
Ingredients in this Strawberry Crepes Recipe
- large eggs
- all purpose flour
- vanilla extract
- vegetable oil or melted butter (use unsalted butter if using butter)
Cream Cheese Crepe Filling

Simple Crepe Recipe for Making Crepes
We have an entire post dedicated to making basic crepes so if you are looking for more detailed instructions on making crepes, our How To Make Crepes (And 25+ Crepe Filling Ideas) post is a great place to start. In a nutshell, crepes can be made in just 3 easy steps:
- Blend – Combine all the ingredients in a blender to make the crepe batter
- Cook – Cook your crepes over medium heat in a non-stick skillet and flip with a spatula when golden brown
- Fill – This is actually an optional step. You can serve them plain with no filling if you prefer. Fold or roll up the crepes and serve!
- Optional – if you are making several crepes and need to keep them warm: add cooked crepes to a baking sheet and divide with parchment or wax paper to prevent sticking. Store in a warm oven until ready to eat. Store any leftovers in the fridge.
Strawberry Crepe Substitutes
The best thing about these strawberry crepes is that you can enjoy them in so many different ways. Making them with our yummy strawberry cream cheese mixture and homemade whipped cream is by far my favorite. Not a fan of strawberries? ANY fresh berries will work in this recipe as a substitute!

Practice Makes Perfect
Below, we have included how to make crepes in a regular, shallow pan and also how to make them using a crepe maker. Don’t be discouraged if they aren’t perfect the first time. It takes a little practice. Also, I have found, the first crepe never seems to turn out right (I have the same problem with the first pancake… anyone else?) by the third or fourth crepe they are all come out nicely. Once you get a feel for when the crepes need to be flipped you will be good. Again, just be patient.

How to Make Strawberry Crepes
Strawberry Crepes with Cream Cheese Filling
- In a blender or food processor combine all ingredients (if you don’t want them to be sweet, take out the sugar and vanilla). Cover and refrigerate about an hour (don’t skip this step, it is very important).
- Heat a skillet* over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray or oil.Pour ¼ cup of the batter into pan, tilting to completely coat the surface of the pan (kind of like how you would if you were trying to coat the pan with oil).
- Cook 3-4 minutes, flipping over once, until golden. The thinner the crepe, the better!*If you have a crepe maker, use that. They will turn out perfect every time.
For the Filling
- Combine strawberries and sugar and set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in strawberry mixture until well combined.
- Put about 1-2 Tbsp. of mixture in each crepe. Roll up and serve with sliced strawberries and whipped cream.
