Cinnamon-Apple Crêpes


Probably, like most of you, I’ll start a diet on January but until then, I’ll keep indulging on all the treats this holiday season has to offer. I mean, it’s hard not to. See, when my whole family is together, all we do is eat our way through long conversations. 
When it comes to dessert, everybody has an opinion, but if there is a thing we all agree on, it’s a good crepe. It is truly a crowd pleaser because if you happen to not like certain filling, you can choose another one and it will still be fantastic. When a crepe is good, even a drizzle of honey would do the trick, wouldn’t you agree? 
Luckily, nobody had that problem here. Everybody loved my cinnamon-apple filling. It’s very simple to put together, it takes about 20 minutes to make the filling and the crepe batter can even be done in advance so that you don’t miss on any of the family gossip going on at the table. Here is the recipe, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! 

Ingredients:

For the crêpes:

Ingredients:
makes 12 crepes

1 1/8 cups of flour
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 1/2  cup milk
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons melted butter,
plus more for the pan
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon sugar

Sift together the flour, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, milk and water and pour the mixture into the dry ingredients whisking constantly until you get a smooth batter. Stir in the melted butter, cover and let the batter rest in the fridge for 45 minutes.   
Heat a crepe pan and grease with some butter. Pour enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan, make sure it gets spread evenly. Cook over medium heat for about 45 seconds, flip and Cook for another 30 seconds.

For the filling:

3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced 
½ cup sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract 

Place all the ingredients (except the vanilla) in a saucepan and mix well, let it cook for 15 minutes or until the apples are tender. Stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn't stick in the bottom. Once the apples are ready, break them down with a potato masher, add the vanilla, stir well and cook for a minute more. Let it cool before serving.
