Crepes Suzette

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at The new version means that we do not have to have flaming Cognac as many people are not comfortable doing this in their dining rooms, and I agree with that! So, leave the burning to the kitchen staff at a favorite restaurant and instead drizzle these crepes with one of the wonderful dessert wines such as Orange Muscat or any fine Sherry.

1 recipe crepes batter (see recipe for Crepes Batter)
1 cup unsalted butter, softened but not melted
zest of one orange
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup raw sugar
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier, or sweet wine, or brandy...
1/4 - 1/2 cup sweet dessert wine, for serving sauce

Make the crepes batter and prepare the crepes as directed, stacking them on a plate. Set aside. With a whisk or food processor, blend the soft butter with zest, juice, sugar, and Grand Marnier to make a creamy mixture. Smear the top of each crepe with butter mixture and fold once, then twice to make a triangle. Melt any remaining butter mixture in a heavy bottomed skillet. Arrange the crepes over the butter and heat to bubbling. Sprinkle with dessert wine. Serve.
Or, if you insist on flaming these, use about 1/3 cup Cognac or Brandy. Using a glass measuring cup, warm the Cognac in your microwave oven for 30 seconds. Quickly pour it over the crepes and ignite it immediately. Watch, cheer, and enjoy.
