For a quick almost-homemade dessert, brush purchased crepes with butter and brown them in the oven. Layer with ice cream and spoon on extra whipped cream, hot fudge topping and a cherry on top if you like.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 2 large baking sheets; set aside. In small bowl stir together sugar and cinnamon. Brush both sides of crepes with butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Cut each crepe into quarters and arrange on two large baking sheets. Bake 1 baking sheet at a time for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on sheets. Remove and set aside. (Note: Handle baked crepes gently; they are delicate and do break easily.)
Cut ice cream crosswise into 10 slices; halve slices crosswise again. To serve, layer crepe pieces and ice cream slices in bowls. Add sweetened whipped cream and cherries. Pass hot fudge ice cream topping. Makes 10 servings.
Sweetened Whipped Cream
In chilled large mixing bowl use large whisk or electric mixer to beat whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Makes 2 cups.
