Apple Cinnamon Crepes

Think you can't make crepes? Think again. Okay, I took a little help from the grocery store, but what did you expect? I am a working mom, after all. These apple cinnamon crepes are dee-licious! Try not to pass out as you dig in!

Apple Cinnamon Crepes
Makes 2

1 tsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
Dash of salt
1/2 cup diced Fuji apple
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. reduced fat/light cream cheese
1/2 cup cool Whip Free, thawed
2 9-inch ready-to-use dessert crepes
1 tsp. fat free or light caramel dip

In a small nonstick pot on stove, combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt with 2 tbsp. cold water. Stir to dissolve. Add diced apple and lemon juice and stir. Bring to medium heat and cover. Cook until apple has softened and liquid has thickened, about 5 minutes, uncovering often to stir.

Remove pot from hear and transfer mixture to bowl. Allow to cool for several minutes. Thoroughly stir in cream cheese. Fold in whipped topping.

Lay crepes flat on dry surface. Evenly distribute apple mixture between the crepes. Fold each crepe up envelop-style, first folding the sides in, and the folding/rolling it up from the bottom.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Place crepes in skillet with seam sides down. Cook them until slightly browned, about 1 minute per side.

Plate your crepes and drizzle them with caramel dip.
