Cut a two-inch piece off of vanilla bean. Split the pod and scrape the vanilla seeds into the egg mixture. Save the pod to flavor your favorite hot beverage.
Set your range heat to med-low (closer to med) and place 1 tbsp butter in a small omelette pan. Let it melt and get bubbly to coat the pan.
Pour about 1/2 cup egg mixture into pan, coating the bottom of the pan to make your first omelette. Let the egg cook, it will turn a pale yellow from the outside in, so that the center is still bright yellow and runny.
Add two to three dollops of Raspberry cream cheese filling and 5 fresh Raspberries to the center of the omelette. Fold in thirds or in half, cook a little longer, and then remove to plate.
Repeat steps 5 through 7 to make four total Omelettes. Wipe out your pan between Omelettes to remove any escaped filling.
Top each Omelette with a dollop of Raspberry Cream Cheese filling, 1 to 3 Fresh Raspberries, and a sprinkling of Powdered Sugar or Cinnamon.
