Crêpes With Apple & Pistachio

Recipe by bluemoon downunder

Granny Smith apples are combined with pistachios and spices to make a delicious filling for crêpes. You can use the crêpe recipe below or use the apple pistachio filling in your own favourite crêpe recipe. Adapted from a recipe in the June 2001 issue of 'Australian Table'. The 20 minutes preparation time does not include the additional 1 hour standing time. To reduce the fat content, use low-fat milk.

This was great, I like the tart and sweet from the apple and the spices go together well. I served with ice cream. Very easy to make. We will be making this again. Thanks

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the crêpes: Combine the flour, salt, eggs, butter and milk in a processor and blend until smooth. Stand for 1 hour. Brush a crêpe pan with a little of the extra melted butter and heat over a moderate heat. Add about 1/4 cup of the batter, rotate the pan to distribute evenly and cook for about 30-40 seconds, or until the bottom is set and golden. Flip the crêpe over to cook on the other side for about 20 seconds. Slide onto a heatproof plate and plate and keep warm in a low oven until all the crêpes have been cooked.
  2. To make the apple filling: Peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Melt the butter in a (preferably non-stick) pan, add the apple, sugar and spices and cook over a moderate heat, stirring frequently until the apple is soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the pistachios and set aside.
  3. To cook: Preheat the oven to 200°C Place a crêpe on a flat surface, and place about 2 tablespoons of the filling onto a quarter of the crêpe. Fold in half and then into quarters. Repeat with the remaining crêpes. Arrange in a lightly buttered ovenproof dish, slightly overlapping. Bake until heated through, about 5-10 minutes.
  4. To serve: Lightly dust the crêpes with icing sugar and serve with cream or ice cream.
