Try this yummy breakfast recipe and serve mom a special Mother’s Day breakfast in bed…


  • 2 Kontos French-Style Traditional Crepes (or make your own from scratch)
  • 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.
