Pears and Caramel

There’s nothing like walking down a cold street holding a hot treat – especially if that treat is a crepe, and that crepe is filled with warm pears and caramel.

Crepes are sold as street food in many parts of the world, but they’re also easy to make at home.  Even without a crepe pan, a shallow skillet and some clever wrist action will do you good.  Make a dozen or so for your family brunch, and then let everyone get creative with the season’s different combinations of toppings and fillings.  In the winter, I like to fill my crepe with pears sauteed in butter and cinnamon, topping it off with some homemade caramel sauce and a sprinkle of orange zest.
