Cinnamon Crepes with Pears


4 ripe pears - peeled and sliced thin
1/4 c butter (I only had Earth's Balance - soy butter substitute)
2 t cornstarch
1/2 c cold water
1/3 c brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon

Melt butter
add pears - cook until tender (I just needed a couple of minutes since my pears were really ripe)
mix cornstarch and cold water - add to pears, stir
add brown sugar and cinnamon - boil 2 minutes


1 1/2 cups AP flour
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter, melted (again, only had soy substitute)

1. wisk together flour and eggs, gradually add milk and water, stirring to combine, add salt and butter - beat until smooth
2. heat a lightly oiled griddle over med-high heat. pour approx 1/3-1/2 cup batter onto the griddle. Tilt the griddle from side to side and front to back so that the batter coats the surface.
3. Cook the crepes for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Flip and cook the other side.

To serve I rolled a couple of tablespoons of pears in each crepe and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
