Crepes Suzette

Crepes Suzette
(makes about 6-8 crepes)


4 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
Juice of 6 oranges
Zest of 1 orange
3 tbsp Grand Marnier
3 tbsp Brandy


1. Prepare your crepes and set aside.

2. In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sugar, juice, zest and Grand Marnier. Stir constantly to reduce to about 3/4 cup.

3. Add a crepe to the pan. Using forks, delicately fold in half, and then in half again, making sure it's well coated with the sauce. Push to one side of the skillet and repeat. **Depending on the size of your skillet, you may have to remove some, keep warm in foil in a low-heated oven; and continue with the rest of your crepes.

4. Once your crepes are all done, you should have some sauce left in the skillet. This is optional. You can add the brandy to the pan, remove from the heat to a counter that is safe; and ignite it with a match. Be careful of eyebrows! :)

5. Pour the last of the sauce over the crepes and garnish with orange zest. You can serve this as a dessert with yogurt or vanilla ice cream too!
