      Make the sauce

    1. Whisk 1 cup sugar, butter, water, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and egg yolk together in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Cover sauce to keep warm.
    2. Make the filling

    3. Beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup mandarin juice, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and vanilla essence in a bowl using an electric mixer until well blended; mixture will be a bit lumpy.
    4. Make the crepes

    5. Blend milk, flour and eggs together in a bowl using an electric mixer. Set a greased crepe pan over medium heat. Ladle batter in until just covering the bottom of the pan. Cook until top dries, about 3 minutes. Flip and set aside; repeat with the remaining batter.
    6. Spoon filling into crepes and fold over like a taco. Spoon mandarin pieces over filled crepes. Pour sauce on top.
