Ingredients

Crepes

  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water (may need up to 1/2 cup more)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbls melted butter
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin or apple butter
  • 1/2 large red apple, sliced as thin as you can (using a mandolin will be the easiest way to slice the apple)

Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Caramel Sauce

  • 1/2 large red apple, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbls butter
  • 2 tbls brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tbls The Pinehurst Olive Oil Co. Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar

Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Yogurt

  • 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbls The Pinehurst Olive Oil Co. Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar
  • hint of ground cinnamon

Instructions

Crepes

  1. Mix the flour, eggs, milk, water and salt with a whisk, be sure to whisk out any lumps. 
  2. Add the melted butter and refrigerate for 1 one hour.
  3. Start the sauce below when you begin to make the crepes. You’ll make the crepes one at a time, brushing your pan with melted butter often.
  4. Pour only about 1/2 cup of the batter in at a time, swirling the pan to spread the batter as thin as possible. Flip when the first side turns golden brown.   As you stack the crepes, spread about 2 tablespoons of apple butter between each layer.

Notes

Tip and Techniques:  I made small crepes using a small omelet pan so that the stack would be slightly high.  It does take some time to make the crepes as the batter needs to rest, so start them well before you plan to eat.  Use either pumpkin or apple butter- they will both yield fantastic flavors! You can even skip the apples if you want a more pancake-type of texture; the apples give it a nice crunch though.
