Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

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.

Amaretto Iced Coffee

A good friend of mine has designated this drink as an official "to die for beverage". Well, we know they are good, but I don't think they are quite that good. Decadent and perfect for a hot summer evening, they make a delightful drink to serve with almost any menu. For a non-alcoholic version, use Amaretto flavored coffee and 2 tablespoons Amaretto flavored syrup.

3 cups strong black coffee
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup Amaretto liqueur
Crushed ice

Combine the coffee, milk, ice cream, extracts, and liqueur in a blender, using half of the ingredients at a time if you have a small blender. Pulse until combined and smooth. Fill six tall 12 ounce glasses halfway with the crushed ice. Pour the coffee mixture overtop.

Makes 6 servings.
