Apple Crepes

Apple Crepes with Caramel Sauce | Cooking on the Front Burner

An apple (crepe) a day keeps the doctor away and with this month's #12bloggers recipes, you can have almost 2 weeks worth of new recipes to try.  Summer is still here - thank goodness - but soon we'll be turning to apples to make some scrumptious recipes!  So glad the group decided on apples this time around so I can get some new ideas.  I'm sharing these apple crepes that I hope you will enjoy!

 We have an apple tree in our back yard.  Just one tree, but I've been told by the DIY Guy that it is loaded.  Last year we harvested about 300 and looks like we have another bumper crop.  We got a head start to picking last weekend when our 2 year old granddaughter reached up and picked one off to eat.  First I surprised she could reach the lower branches, and then thought since it was still green, she might not like it but she ended up eating most of it.  She shares well and offered a bite to us all!  She's such a cutie!

    Please don't be intimidated to make crepes - I always thought, wow, they look so good but must be hard to make.  But I couldn't have been more wrong.  It is basically a thin pancake batter and with a slippery pan, they cook perfectly!
