We have a Christmas tradition of eating crepes for breakfast but it’s only April and I can’t wait until December before enjoying dessert crepes again! We usually fill the crepes with vanilla pudding and top them with berries but today I wanted to get a bit more creative with them so I came up with Cinnamon Bun Crepes. Oh my gosh – they are so delicious! They are really sweet so don’t load your plate full of them but they make a delicious little dessert!

Dessert Crepes – Cinnamon Bun Crepes:

There is probably an easy way to make crepes in a frying pan but I always go for the easiest route which is using my mom’s crepe maker. It saves time and doesn’t make too much of a mess. If you plan on making crepes for your family often, I’d recommend purchasing one. If not, I’m sure there’s a handy YouTube video somewhere on how to make crepes in a frying pan.

These are delicious topped with berries or bananas but you can just sprinkle yours with some of the cinnamon sugar topping and drizzle with leftover cream cheese mixture.
