Happy Halloween! We are getting closer to the 31st of October which means Halloween and time for pumpkin crepes. This year I have decided to make a few different recipes with pumpkin as the main ingredient. I always enjoy eating crepes, all year round, but to make them with pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree is a perfect combination this time of the year.
To make this recipe start making the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice syrup, which you can do several days in advance. Pumpkin puree is super easy to make, but keep in mind that it needs around 45 minutes in the oven. The pumpkin puree is used in the pumpkin spice syrup and in the crepes themselves. Often, I have even more pumpkin puree leftover (depending on the size of the pumpkin), that I usually freeze until I need it for something else.
