  • 1/2 C of flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 Cup of reduced sugar orange marmalade

Mix the sour cream and cinnamon together, set aside. Coat a small skillet with cooking spray. Place the skillet over low heat and add 2 tbsp of the batter. Lift the pan to evenly coat the bottom with the batter. Cook until the top is dry and the bottom is lightly browned. Remove the crepe to a wire rack to cool and continue cooking the batter until all the batter is used. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
