In this dish, a soft, thin crepe wraps around a whipped cream cheesecake filling that’s fluffy and light. It’s made from heavy cream, confectioner’s sugar, and pudding to add smooth richness to every bite. The crepes are topped with a warm scoop of luscious apples that are cooked in Martinelli’s Apple Juice with a dash of apple pie spice and brown sugar. The finishing touch is a drizzle of apple icing made with a splash of Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider.
These delicious crepes are the perfect combination of elegance and nostalgia. When it comes to capturing the essence of homemade flavors, it’s important to use quality, fresh-tasting ingredients. Martinelli’s Apple Juice, Cider, and Sparkling Cider are made from 100% juice from US grown fresh apples. And they have an organic blend too! I knew these products would be perfect for bringing that cozy apple flavor to life in this dish!

You may or may not be planning on cooking together, but if you want to impress that special someone, this recipe will do the trick! It’s simple to make but looks sophisticated, and your date will be flattered that you made something special just for them.
