Expert Tip

Garnishing your apple filling with mint leaves can add a burst of color as well as a hint of cool freshness to the flavor.

President Butter and Apple Cinnamon Crepes

President Butter

A distinct butter from a distinct region. Président butter gets its full nutty flavor, creamy texture and gold yellow color from the rich and fertile area it’s made in. Normandy, France is considered the “grand cru” of Europe’s dairy regions thanks to its oceanic climate and rich grass. This ensures our cows get the best sustenance to produce the best dairy possible.

Apple Filling

A crepe by itself is only half finished. One of the greatest complements you could add to your crepe is wrapping it around apple filling. The thin buttery goodness of the crepe is a perfect pairing for the sugary sweetness of apples and cinnamon. It’s a versatile combination you can have for breakfast or dessert.


To make authentic French Crepes use authentic French butter. A favorite French classic enjoyed around the world, the word crepes literally means curled. Whether they’re for breakfast, brunch—or really any occasion—rich buttery crepes are always a crowd pleaser.

Mint Leaves

Fresh mint leaves add a refreshing burst of flavor to contrast with the savory apple filling.


Pluck whole leaves off the stem at the last minute. Don't cut or tear the leaves.
