Yield: 4 Servings

Difficulty: Easy 


2 oranges (blood oranges or "regular" oranges)

½ Cup pure maple syrup

4 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp Grand Marnier

8 very thin crepes, store-bought or homemade from your favorite crepe recipe

1 Cup mascarpone cheese


Zest the oranges and place in a small bowl. Peel the oranges with a small, sharp knife. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to separate the orange segments. Place the segments on a small plate and the membranes in the bowl. When you're done separating the orange segments, squeeze the membranes to extract all of the juices and discard the membranes. Pour any residual juices from the plate into the bowl to add to the juice. Heat maple syrup in a large Swiss Diamond Fry Pan over medium heat. Add butter, orange zest and orange juice. Simmer the mixture over medium-low for five minutes. Add the Grand Marnier and simmer for two minutes more until the sauce slightly thickens. Place 1 to 2 crepes on each plate and add a dollop of mascarpone to each. Add the orange segments to the sauce and heat over low to warm the oranges. Spoon the mixture over the crepes on each plate and serve immediately.
