  • Yield: Serves 6
  • Total:1 Hour, 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • Crêpe batter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • About 3 tbsp. melted butter
  • Cheese filling
  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Peach topping
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 large peaches, sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons cognac
  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

Preparation

1. Make batter: Whirl together eggs, flour, and milk in a blender until smooth.

2. Heat a small nonstick frying pan over medium heat and brush with butter. Pour in 2 tbsp. batter, swirling to spread evenly. Cook until golden underneath, 1 minute; flip over and cook 30 seconds. Make remaining crêpes, brushing pan with butter and stacking finished crêpes.

3. Make filling: Stir together ricotta, sugar, zest, and salt in a medium bowl. Spoon 1 tbsp. filling into center of a crêpe. Fold crêpe in half, pressing gently to spread filling evenly, then fold in half again to form a triangle. Continue with remaining crêpes.

4. Melt 1 tbsp. butter in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. In batches, carefully add filled crêpes; cook until golden brown, turning once, 5 minutes total. Transfer to a platter and keep warm.

5. Make topping: Melt butter in pan over high heat. Add peaches, sugars, cinnamon, and juice; cook, stirring occasionally, until sugars melt, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; carefully stir in cognac. Pour peaches over crêpes and sprinkle with almonds.

Make ahead: Make and fill crêpes through step 3, cover, and chill overnight.
