PER SERVING (1/2 of recipe, 1 crepe): 130 calories, 2.5g fat, 209mg sodium, 24g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 12g sugars, 1.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
- 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cornstarch
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
- Dash salt
- 1/2 cup diced Fuji apple (about 1/2 apple)
- 1/8 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. reduced-fat/light cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/2 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed from frozen
- Two 9-inch ready-to-use dessert crepes (like the kind by Frieda's or Melissa's)
- 1 tsp. fat-free or light caramel dip (like the kinds by Marzetti), room temperature
- Optional: powdered sugar
In a small nonstick pot on the 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 heat and transfer mixture to a bowl. Allow to cool for several minutes. Thoroughly stir in cream cheese. Fold in whipped topping.
Lay crepes flat on a dry surface. Evenly distribute apple mixture between the crepes. Fold each crepe up envelope-style, first folding the sides in, and then folding/rolling it up from the bottom.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Place crepes in the skillet with the seam sides down. Cook them until slightly browned, about 1 minute per side. (Flip carefully.)
Plate your crepes and drizzle them with caramel dip. If you like, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Try not to pass out as you dig in!
