Tortillas are sturdier than crepes, the better to hold this chunky filling of caramelized apples. Soften and enrich them by brushing with melted butter and keeping them warm in the oven while you cook the apples. A rustic but also elegant dessert, these crepes are great for brunch, drizzled with maple syrup in place of the cinnamon sugar. From Church Suppers
