Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.


This traditional Irish dessert is one of my favorite treats. It combines a unique texture and blend of flavors for a marvelous dessert that will be sure to bring back fond memories of Ireland. This recipe combines many staples of Irish cooking...oatmeal, honey, raspberries, rhubarb, and wonderful Irish Whiskey.

1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 cup chopped rhubarb
2 cups raspberries
3 tablespoons honey
2 cups heavy cream (whipping cream)
4 tablespoons whiskey

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread the oatmeal out on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, stirring frequently. In a medium saucepan, add the rhubarb and half of the raspberries with 2 tablespoons honey. Cook over medium heat until the rhubarb is tender. Cool. In a large bowl whip the cream until stiff. Fold in the remaining honey and whiskey. Layer in a trifle bowl or individual glasses some of the cream mixture, some toasted oatmeal, the rhubarb mixture, and some fresh raspberries. Then repeat. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves if desired. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Makes 6 servings.
