Apple Carmel Crepes (p2)

I got a great recipe awhile back from my good friend Gretchen, A.K.A the Kitchen Goddess. She and I have been friends for years now and I totally enjoy doing South Beach with her. She is doing GREAT by the way and I'm so proud of her!!!! Anyways I got this recipe from her and I've made it a few times and changed it up a bit. Below is my adaption of her Apple Crepes recipe. Oh and be sure to visit her blog: Beachin with the Kitchen Goddess, as she has some really great recipies on there.

Apple Carmel Crepes (P2)

Apple Compote:

6 to 8 Apples: core, peel and chop
1 Tab smart balance
1 to 2 tsp vanilla
1/3 to 1/2 c Da Vinci sugar free Carmel Syrup
1 Tab cinnamon (cuz i like a lot)
1/8 to 1/4 each nutmeg and ground cloves
a dash of salt
Core, peel and chop all the apples placing them in a bowl of water with a tiny bit of lemon juice, to keep from browning. Drain the apples really well and heat a med to large nonstick skillet with a butter. Add drained apples and all the rest of the ingredients and saute. Cook until apples are tender and the entire mixture is reduced and thickened a bit. Remove from heat and set aside

NOTE: if you have any of this left over its great to dress up Plain yogurt, over Pancakes, on Pudding or over ice cream.


Cream Cheese Mixture:
1 8oz cream cheese, soften
1 Tab Da Vinci Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
1to 2 tsp Vanilla
3 pkt Splenda

dash of salt

Blend all ingredients til smooth and creamy. add more syrup, vanilla or splenda if needed. set aside.

Crepes:


2 egg
1 1/2 c Skim Milk
1 c WW Flour
2 pinches of Salt
Mix egg, milk, flour, and salt together until well blended and let sit 10 minutes. Heat crepe pan or 8 inch omelet pan over med heat until water sizzles. Use approx. 3-4 tbsp batter per crepe. Pour batter into pan and swirl to coat the bottom, cook until top dries then flip them and cook 30 more seconds. Remove to plate and make the rest. (makes about 10)



To build the desert:

Heat up the apple compote if needed. Spread a small amount of the cheese mixture along one side of a crepe and add a little apple compote, roll them cigar-style. Top with a little extra apple compote, sugar free Cool Whip and sprinkle a little cinnamon top and . ENJOY!!!!!
