When I was writing my recipe column many years ago, I made this recipe and took it to work with me to treat the staff- and I am pleased to say it got rave reviews!
Recipe can be made with any fruit, pudding or pie filling.

I used an electric crepe-maker.
Skillet works fine too.
For the sauce you can use raspberry preserves and add a bit of lemon juice and heat in a saucepan.
You can use instant pudding instead of the ricotta or just use whole raspberries inside with sauce on top.

Anyway you make them add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for an added treat! Enjoy!
