Glazed Pear Crepes

I invented this recipe for Glazed Pear crepe filling after we ate at a French cafe and saw it on the menu (too late to order it). It was delicious and we'll definitely be having it again.

Glazed Pear Crepe Filling Recipe

2 pears, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup apple juice (optional)
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
dash cinnamon

Boil pears in apple juice until soft, if required. Drain. If you are using canned pears, or if your pears are really ripe you can probably skip this step, but pears in India don't ever seem to ripen.

Melt butter in pan and add brown sugar and cinnamon . Saute pears in butter and brown sugar until it forms a glaze sauce that clings to the pears.

Spoon the glazed pear filling into a crepe and top with some whipped cream.

Here is my mom's crepe recipe as well. Crepes are really easy to make.

Crepe Recipe

1 c. cold water
1 c. cold milk
4 eggs
1/2 t. salt
2 c. flour
4 T. melted butter

Blend all ingredients in the blender.

Pour about 1/4 c. batter into a heated, 6 inch non-stick frying pan (don’t grease it). Swirl the pan around, off the heat, until it is covered in batter, then pour out the excess. Cook until lightly browned, flip and cook about 10 more seconds to brown the other side.
