Cooking Instructions For Caramelized Apple Crepe Recipe
Peel and chop the apples into ½ - 1 inch size cubes. Place in a bowl and combine with only the cinnamon,ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
Over medium heat, melt your butter so it covers the skillet. Add in your sugars, and allow the heat to begin to caramelize them. Stir during the process until you get the nice amber color caramel is known for, about 4-6 minutes.
Add in your apples and continue to cook, stirring, until the apples are breaking down. You want them to be soft, but still a bit crisp. No worries though, mushy apples taste great too!
Once caramelized, add in the vanilla and allow to cook 1 minute more, stirring.
While your apples are cooking, cook crepes according to package directions
Fill cooked crepes with apple filling. Top with whipped cream, or cinnamon sugar.
