~For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.

~Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet and pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry. Turn and cook about 15 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack.
