Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise and seeds scraped
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 1 red chile pepper, halved, seeds and pith removed

Puree the raspberries and their juices, chile pepper and 2 tablespoons brown sugar in a food processor. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the ricotta filling in the center of a crepe and roll.
