Hot Spiced Apple Crepes
1 tablespoon butter
About 2 1/2 pounds tart apples, such as Granny Smith or heirloom apple variety, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice
About 1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons rum or brandy (optional)
1 package of Frieda’s French Style Crepes
Whipped cream (optional)
Melt butter in a 10-to 12-inch frying pan over medium heat. Mix in apples, lemon juice, and apple pie spice. Cook, turning occasionally with a wide spatula until apples are just tender when pierced 4 to 6 minutes. Mix in sugar to taste. Continue to cook and mix apples gently until juices are syrupy, 3 or 4 minutes. Drizzle with rum and at once ignite (not beneath a fan or near flammable materials), shake pan gently until flames subside. Continue cooking until most of the liquid is gone. Meanwhile, remove crepes, from package and place on a 10-inch nonmetal plate. Cover with a paper towel. Heat in a microwave oven on full power (100%) until crepes are warmed through, 15 to 20 seconds.
Place a warm crepe on a plate. Spoon the filling onto a quarter of the crepe. Fold crepe in half, then in half again. Keep warm. Repeat to fill remaining crepes. Serve with whipped cream.
