These fantastic crêpes — complete with no-sugar-added low-fat vanilla ice cream — can serve as a delicious dessert to top off your meal or a sweet seasonal snack to break up a dreary afternoon.

Ingredients
Nonstick cooking spray
1 large baking apple, such as Gala or Jonathan, peeled, cored, and cut into 6 wedges
1 large tart apple, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and cut into 6 wedges
1/4 cup dried sweetened cranberries or cherries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

1 tablespoon diet margarine
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar substitute
3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 cup no-sugar-added low-fat vanilla ice cream

Directions
1 – Spray slow cooker with cooking spray.

2 – Place apple wedges, cranberries, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in slow cooker; toss to coat. Cover; cook on LOW 2 hours. Stir margarine into apple mixture just until melted.
