Ingredients

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

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

In a clean big bowl, whip together the whipping cream and vanilla bean seeds. Fold in the ricotta cheese, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and then whip 5 more seconds to mix. Cover the bowl and refrigerate.

In a food processor combine the flour, eggs, milk, and water pulse for 10 seconds. In a frying pan, heat the butter over medium heat.

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.
