Crepes with agave-ricotta cheese filling, topped with pears roasted in honey - delicious recipe for crepe lovers. I also provide a recipe for homemade crepes (how to make crepes from scratch). Delicious crepe filling recipe for homemade regular crepes or homemade gluten free crepes.
OK, after my blog post yesterday on how to make crepes, I can't wait to share one of my most favorite ways to serve them. So here it goes: Crepes with ricotta cheese filling and honey-roasted pears. I want to warn you right away, this post has some of my worst photography, and the resulting crepes with ricotta cheese look much more appetizing in real life than on some of these photos. This easy dessert literally takes minutes to make (provided that you already made a stack of crepes in advance, like me, I always have them handy), and people would assume that you slaved over this for hours.
And again, most of the photos in this post do not do the justice to this crepe recipe, I just didn't have the right light and didn't have time to take a better looking photo. In real life, these Crepes with ricotta cheese filling and honey-roasted pears will look quite sophisticated on a plate.
Photos to illustrate some of the steps:
Sliced pears, "roasted" in butter in a small skillet on stove top, then add honey immediately for pears to sizzle and caramelize
Ricotta cheese with agave nectar:
Agave-ricotta cheese mixture on top of crepe, then fold it half, then fold it again - to form a triangle

Crepes with ricotta cheese filling and pears
- 4 homemade crepes (detailed tutorial with photos here)
- gluten free crepes (use this link if you’re gluten intolerant)
- ½ cup ricotta cheese
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- 2 pears cored and sliced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Heat ricotta cheese and agave nectar in a small skillet on medium-high and keep mixing it until the mixture becomes liquid and of even consistency. Remove from heat and let it cool. Once it cools a bit, the mixture would become more solid, which is what we want.
- In a separate medium size pan, heat 2 tablespoons of butter on high heat. Add sliced pears to the butter, close the pan with the lid and let it cook on high for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, flip sliced pears on the other side, close the pan with the lid and let it cook on high for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Depending on how hot your stove gets, it might take you less or more time, the key is to brown the pears or even get a slightly “burned” effect. But don’t over-do it, and once pears have this “roasted” appearance. Once you removed the pan with pears from the heat, immediately add honey to the pears – adding honey will make pears sizzle and will caramelize them beautifully, off heat.
- To serve: add 2 tablespoons of agave-ricotta cheese mixture on top of the open crepe, fold the crepe in half, then fold it one more time to form a triangle. Pour hot mixture of honey, butter and pears on top. Ready to serve!

Hi, I like your site because it is easy to read. The recipes are easy to copy and or print without going through extra meaningless instruction.
These were absolutely incredible! Wanting something sweet and warm and easy at 2 am, I had pears and ricotta. I did substitute sugar for the agave. They did not disappoint! The ricotta is a perfect counterpoint for the buttery honey pears.
I am so glad you tried these crepes and liked them! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind comment! I really appreciate it!
Lovely delicate dessert. Beautiful presentation. Thank you.
Thank you, Suzanne!
