Apple Walnut Crepes
These apple walnut crepes are super easy to make. Each crepe is loaded with a delicious apple walnut filling then topped with powdered sugar. As the apple and walnut filling is simmering in the saucepan, the smell is amazing. Nothing says fall like the aroma that fills a kitchen with the smell of delicious fall desserts. Having my home, especially my kitchen, smell like fall is the absolute best.
The green apples (which have been difficult to find lately in my area, if you can believe that) have been staring at me every time I go into the kitchen. This morning I knew exactly what I was going to make, these tasty apple walnut crepes.
When you make these, pecans can be substituted instead of using walnuts. Many prefer pecans with apples but either works well with this dessert.
So grab those apples, peel and chop them into small pieces. Using a medium saucepan, add all the ingredients for the filling, except the apples, and get that going. Once the sauce has thickened up, add the chopped apples and walnuts. Then simmer for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
And while the apples are simmering, start making the crepes. You know those little holes you see in the crepes? How to get those is by spraying a hot pan with a non stick spray or adding butter right before adding the crepe mixture to the pan. The bubbles from the spray or butter create the holes once the mixture is added. Super easy. So you’ll spray the pan, place 1/3 cup of mixture in the crepe pan, or a shallow frying pan, swirl around to coat the bottom of the pan with the mixture and cook for a minute or two. Flip over and cook for additional minute or so.
When making each crepe, fold it in fourths when it’s done, set it on a plate and cover with a dish towel until they are ready to be filled. Once the apple mixture is finished, gently grab a crepe and spoon the apple walnut filling into the center. Roll the crepes up, place on a plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm and enjoy.
