Recipe by Crafty Lady 13

Just like Julia...if you liked the movie, you'll love the recipes. Weight Watchers has updated the beloved chef's timeless classics, keeping the French flavor, but trimming the fat. The original: 19 Points values - WW remake: 4 Points values. So why not serve a few of your favorites when you host a Julia-inspired Oscar fete this year? Bon appetit! Tip: If you want to prepare this dessert but skip the alcohol, substitute 1 Tbsp lemon juice for the liqueur and omit boiling the sauce in step 4. When you swirl in the butter in step 5, add the grated zest of 1/2 lemon.

Directions

  1. Grate zest of 1 orange, cut in half, then squeeze enough juice to equal 1/3 cup. Peel and cut remaining 2 oranges into sections and transfer to small bowl.
  2. Combine flour, 1 tablespoon sugar and salt in medium bowl. Combine milk, eggs and orange zest in small bowl, beating with whisk until blended. Slowly whisk milk mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Let stand 15 minutes.
  3. Spray small nonstick skillet or crepe pan with nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Stir batter, then pour scant 1/4 cup into skillet, tilting in all directions to form thin, even layer. Cook until top is set and bottom is golden, 1-1 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook until second side is lightly browned, 15-20 seconds. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining batter to make 6 crepes in all. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and set aside.
  4. Mix orange juice, orange sections and their juices and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar in large skillet, Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves.
  5. Working one at a time, dip crepe into hot juice mixture Fold crepe into quarters and transfer to warmed serving platter. Repeat with remaining crepes. Add liqueur to skillet and bring to boil; boil about 30 seconds. Remove skillet from heat ans swirl in butter until melted. Pour hot sauce over crepes.
