CrÍpes with Flowers and Apples

From Italian Cooking and Living, October/November 2003

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 cups milk
  • 11/2 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • edible flower petals (available at gourmet stores)
  • vanilla ice cream
  • confectioners' sugar for dusting

Place the apples in a bowl, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar, and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar, milk, flour and eggs. Lightly butter a small nonstick skillet. Using a ladle, pour a thin layer of batter into the skillet. Place an apple slice and a flower petal on each crÍpe. When the first side has cooked, about 30 seconds, flip it over using a spatula, and cook the other side for 20 seconds. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serves 4
