Cranberry Orange Jam
Wash and sort cranberries, getting rid of soft ones.
Put the cranberries, sugar and orange juice in deep cooking pan and over medium heat, cook it until soft.
For a smooth jam, let it cool and process it in a blender. Refrigerate in an airtght container.
Cooking the Crepes
Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs and half of the milk.
Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Try to get rid of any lumps.
Add the melted butter and the rest of the milk and whisk until smooth. Set aside.
In a crepe pan or shallow frying pan or medium heat, spray some PAM Non-GMO Avocado Oil Cooking Spray. With a brush or paper towel, spread the oil on the pan.
Pour 1/4 cup of crepe mixture into the pan and quickly swirl the pan around to spread the batter into the pan forming a larger circle.
Turn the heat up to medium high and let it cook for a couple minutes until the top forms a film and the bottom is slightly golden brown.
Flip the crepe with a spatula and cook for a couple more minutes. Remove crepe and place it on a large plate.
Continue doing that until all crepes are cooked.
Assembling the crepes
Put one crepe into a flat surface. Place about 1-2 tablespoons of the cranberry orange mascarpone filling in the center and with the back of the spoon, spread it around until about 1/4 inch from the edges.
Fold the crepes in half to form a semicircle and then fold it in half again to form a triangle.
Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and enjoy!
