Can’t wait until Thanksgiving to get your pumpkin pie fix? No worries. These crepes are about as close to pumpkin pie as you can get without eating the actual thing. They are so delicious.
tips for making crepes:
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. I definitely prefer mixing the the two with a whisk, rather than a spoon, to ensure that the mixture is completely combined.
- Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Be sure to do it, little by little, or else you could get flower pockets, that will be difficult to break down.
- Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Usually my first crepe doesn’t turn out as well, because the pan is really oily.My second, third and fourth crepes, work great, then I usually add a little grease, every three crepes.
- Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
- Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, I usually move the spatula around the entire crepe before flipping it, just to be sure the crepe stays intact.Then once the whole crepe is loose from the pan, I flip and cook the other side.
what can i use if i don’t have pumpkin pie spice
Pumpkin pie spice is a simple ingredient to replace, because it is made up of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg.
Here are the ratios that work perfectly for this recipe: combining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon cloves, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg.
why do I need to leave it on the counter for 2 hours?
Leaving it on the counter allows the pumpkin pie crepe filling to set up. It helps it get a little stiffer, and allows it to cool down so it isn’t so hot.
If you are needing to speed this up, you can also place this mixture in the fridge, to allow it to cool sooner.
