My two amazingly action packed days at General Mills and the Betty Crocker kitchens still boggle me – we got so much done! From the moment we arrived at GM, I am visualizing those first few moments walking through their front door, we were enveloped by a well oiled and very welcoming machine composed of the nicest people who seemed honestly excited to see us.

One of the first things we saw in the lobby was a welcoming sign in spanish as we were a sub-group of a larger group of bloggers – the latina bloggers (blogueras if you will).

That sign was similar to the one you see below that welcomed us on the second day.

I am going to go a bit backward in this post and share with you a recipe we cooked, in teams, on the second day in the kitchens you see below.

Notice the film crew? Yeah, I did too.

I tried to duck them as much as possible but I fear there is video out there, of me – if you find it, dont tell me, I just cant watch!

There is a lot more about the beautiful GM campus but I will leave that for another post.

Today I am going to share this easy but beautiful recipe for crepes made with Bisquick, filled with a delightful lemon cream and raspberries.

When we were making this in the test kitchens, we had a lot of fun making the delicate crepes.

They look delicate but are actually quite easy to make. You get a great sense of satisfaction making these because they come out so pretty – very photogenic.

For those of you following from homes where you might make your own bisquick mix or might wish to use a whole wheat alternative I will blog a similarly delicious flip/side to the delicious crepes you see above – whole wheat buttermilk crepes with homemilked goats milk custard and blueberries.

Here is a sneak peek at that recipe:

Stay tuned for that post.

Lemon Cream Crepes

Ingredients:

Crepes

  • 1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • Filling

    • 2 cups sour cream
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 1 box (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
    • 2 cups fresh raspberries
    • Powdered sugar
    • Additional fresh raspberries, if desired

    Directions:

    In small bowl, beat Bisquick mix, sugar, 1/2 cup milk, the melted butter and eggs with whisk or fork until blended. Grease 6- or 7-inch nonstick skillet with shortening; heat over medium heat until bubbly. For each crepe, pour 2 tablespoons batter into skillet; immediately rotate skillet until batter covers bottom. Cook until golden brown on bottom side. Run wide spatula around edge to loosen; turn and cook other side until golden brown. Stack crepes as you remove them from skillet, placing waxed paper between each; keep covered.

    In small bowl, beat sour cream, 1/2 cup milk, the lemon peel, lemon juice and pudding mix with whisk or fork until blended.

    To assemble each crepe, spoon about 1/4 cup of the filling on one end of crepe; top with 5 raspberries. Roll up; sprinkle each crepe with powdered sugar. Serve with additional raspberries.
