Really great simple recipe. I agree with the other two comments, you really don't need that much margarine/butter, I put just enough to saute the apples and didn't feel the need to add more. Used equal amounts of local unpasteurized honey (a good season allergy cure!) and brown sugar, a little salt in addition to the lemon to cut the sweetness and it was just perfect, I didn't even need to eat the crepes with syrup or anything. In the future I would add cranberries and almonds or walnuts.. I think that would be amazing.

I really enjoyed this on top of my pancakes. I made some adjustments - I used 2 granny smith apples, 1/4 cup of butter (could cut down to 3tbsp), 2 tbsp of brown sugar, 3 tbsp of honey and 1/2 - 3/4 tsp of cinnamon and sprinkled on some lemon juice. Same ingredients but this was just the right amount of sweetness for me. Thanks!

It was excellent! Instead of 1 c of unsalted butter I used 1/2 c. This recipe really made the crepe delicious. Thank you so much!!
