1 ¼ c. Milk
¾ c. + 2 tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
½ c. Cream
6 tbsp. Sugar
3 Eggs
1 tbsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp. Salt

Cherries Jubilee Ingredients:

8 oz. EVERCLEAR® Grain Alcohol
3 c. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
20 oz. Luxardo Cherries
4 oz. Butter
1 Lemon, Zested and Juiced
1 Lime, Zested and Juiced
1 Orange, Zested and Juiced
Salt, to Taste

Crepe Filling Ingredients:

6 oz. EVERCLEAR® Grain Alcohol
2 Sprigs Thyme
1 tsp. Salt
10 oz. Dried Cherries
16 oz. Ricotta Cheese
8 oz. Mascarpone

Chantilly Cream Ingredients:

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
5 tbsp. Powdered Sugar
1 Pinch Salt


  1. First, make the crepe batter by blending all ingredients for at least 3 minutes and refrigerating for at least 5 hours. Then make crepes by ladling batter into nonstick skillet or crepe pan and cooking over medium heat until the edges crisp up.
  2. Next, make the cherries jubilee topping by cooking orange juice and EVERCLEAR in a sauté pan over medium heat until reduced by half. Add Luxardo cherries and butter and cook for another 2 minutes. Add salt, citrus zest and juice and stir. Cook until jubilee is thick enough to cover the back of a spoon.
  3. Make crepe filling by cooking dried cherries, EVERCLEAR, salt and thyme on low to medium heat until liquid has evaporated. Then mix by folding into ricotta, mascarpone and salt.
  4. To make the Chantilly cream, put ice in a medium bowl and put a small bowl on top. In the small bowl, whisk all ingredients until the mixture is thick and silky.
  5. To plate, grab a crepe, fold in quarters and fill with crepe filling. Spoon cherries jubilee and Chantilly cream on the filled crepes. Dust powdered sugar over the top.
  6. (Optional) To flambé, drizzle a small amount of EVERCLEAR and ignite with a match. Please flambé responsibly.

Please Enjoy Responsibly.
