Cardamom Crepes with Apples and Almond Butter

I love the taste of cardamom-a sort of spicy, floral flavor, and so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. The recipe is from www.reciperewards.com. I served the crepes with stewed apples, and then later I served the leftover crepes with some almond butter and strawberry jam.

Crepes:
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons very soft butter

Whip the eggs, butter, and milk together. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Let the batter sit for several minutes. Cook the crepes in a buttered crepe pan or saute pan over medium heat, turning once.

For the apples: I cooked sliced, peeled apples in a saucepan with some apple juice, a little butter, a little sugar, a pinch of ground cloves, some cinnamon, and 1 piece of star anise, until they were very soft. The apples would also be very good over ice cream or pancakes. To make almond butter: Grind up whole raw almonds in a food processor until they form a paste. You can drizzle in a bit of vegetable oil if the mixture is too dry. You can also add a bit of sugar if you want a sweeter almond butter
