Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Maple Cream

  • 4 tart cooking apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and diced

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • ½ cup apple juice, apple cider, or water

  • ½ cup raisins or dried cherries

Crepes

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ cup milk

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Maple Cream

  • 1 cup cottage cheese

  • ½ cup plain lowfat yogurt

  • ½ cup pure maple syrup

Directions

  1. Prepare Maple Cream. In a large skillet toss together apples and lemon juice. Stir in apple juice, raisins or dried cherries, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or just until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in jelly; cook for 5 minutes more. Remove from heat; keep warm.

  2. For each serving, place a Crepe on a dessert plate. Spread 1/4 cup of the apple mixture over half of each Crepe; fold Crepe over. Spoon Maple Cream over filled Crepes.

Crepes

  1. In a blender combine all ingedients; blend until smooth.

  2. Heat a lightly greased small skillet over medium-high heat; remove from heat. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter; lift and tilt skillet to spread batter evenly. Return to heat; cook 1 minute or until browned on one side. Turn crepe over; cook 1 minute more. Slide crepe onto paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet occasionally. If crepes are browning too quickly, reduce heat to medium.

Maple Cream

  1. In a blender or food processor combine cottage cheese and yogurt. Cover and blend or process 2 minutes or until very smooth. Stir in maple syrup. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes.
