Mother’s Day Brunch fit for a Queen!

Mother’s Day is TOMORROW!  Are you ready?  If you aren’t prepared, today is the day to do your last minute present shopping and menu planning for a brunch if you are hosting your lovely ladies.  Today’s recipes are easy and incorporate store bought items, but the final menu will impress your mother (or grandmother or aunt or the woman you are celebrating tomorrow!).  I hope you consider serving all or a few of these recipes to your special lady.  

 

APPLE-CHERRY CREPE PURSE: 

2 Kontos French-Style Traditional Crepes

3 Granny Smith apples, cubed and stewed with a dash of cinnamon

2 cans of cherry pie filling

½ teaspoon of butter

Navel orange peel

¼ cup confectioner’s sugar

Mint leaves for garnish

Cut the apples into small cubes, stew lightly with a dash of cinnamon

Drain stewed apples, mix with one can of cherry pie filling

Warm the mixture in a saucepan or in the microwave

Open your second can of cherry pie filling and lift out cherries. Set the cherries aside for garnish

Cut a thin orange peel strip from your navel orange peel – making the strip as long as possible – set aside

Warm your Kontos French-style crepes in a lightly buttered skillet for one minute each side

Lay each crepe flat. Arrange apple-cherry filling in center of crepe and bring up edges of crepe to center

Pick up edges of crepe, twist gently to enclose filling

Tie the orange peel strip around the crepe to form a purse

Sprinkle with powdered sugar; garnish with four or five cherries and mint leaves. 

Note:  Double or triple the recipe for larger parties. For an extra-special treat, try drizzling with caramel sauce or top with a dollop of whipped cream.
 
“Even the kids can pitch in to make this simple recipe that will delight mom with a touch of French elegance. Apple-cherry crepe purses are easy to make, so you can spend more time focusing on having fun as a family, and less time in the kitchen,” said Steve Kontos, vice president and owner of Kontos Foods.
