Topfenpalatschinken - Crepes With Quark Filling

“This is another classic Viennese dessert. Thinly baked crepes, filled with a Quark Cream filling and finished in the oven. It is important to use authenthic German Quark/Topfen. Some of the upscale markets and German deli's in the US carry it but if you can't find it, there is a fantastic recipe for home made Quark already posted. "How to Make German Quark", it's easy and inexpensive to make and works perfect for this recipe.”
