Mardi gras meringue crepes

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Egg whites,at room temp.
½ teaspoon Cream of tartar
8 tablespoons Sugar,granulated
½ teaspoon Rum extract
¼ cup Pecans,chopped
4 \N Egg yolks
½ cup Milk
½ cup Water
3 tablespoons Butter or margarine,melted
8 \N Crepes
½ cup Brown sugar,firmly packed
2 tablespoons Water
¼ teaspoon Ginger,ground
1 cup Peaches,sliced,frozen(8oz)
¾ cup Flour,all-purpose
½ teaspoon Salt
\N \N Butter,melted


1. In small mixer bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar at high speed until foamy.

2. Add granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating constantly until sugar is dissolved (to test if sugar has been dissolved, rub just a bit of meringue between thumb and forefinger) and whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks. 3. Beat in rum extract; gently fold in pecans.

4. Spread about ⅓ cup meringue across half of each crepe.

5. Staring at midpoint of edge of filled side, roll up crepe, pressing lightly so filling puffs out at ends of rolled crepe.

6. Arrange filled crepes in greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish; bake in preheated 475'F. oven until meringue is firm but not brown, about 7 to 9 minutes.

7. Meanwhile, in small saucepan over medium heat, bring brown sugar, water and ginger to a boil. 8. Boil and stir syrup until thickened, about 4 minutes.

9. Gently stir in peaches; cook until heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes.

10. Serve crepes hot with peach syrup.

*** CREPES ***

1. In mixer bowl, combine egg yolks, milk, water and 3 tablespoons melted butter; beat until well blended.

2. Add flour and salt; beat until smooth.

3. Heat 10-inch omelet or crepe pan over medium-high heat, until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water.

4. Brush pan lightly with melted butter.

5. For each crepe, pour in ¼ cup batter, tipping and tilting pan to move batter quickly over bottom.

6. Cook until lightly browned on bottom and dry on top.

7. Remove crepe from pan or, if desired, turn and brown other side.

8. Brush pan lightly with melted butter as needed to prevent sticking.

9. Stack crepes between layers of wax paper until ready to fill.
