Red-Hot Apple Crepes

2 cups water
½ cup sugar
½ cup red hot cinnamon candies
4 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
6 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ cup milk
¼ cup chopped walnuts
12 crepes (see recipe for Dessert Crepes or Vanilla Dessert Crepes)
2 T cornstarch
2 T water

In saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil.  Pour in candies, stir until melted; add apples; cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until tender.  Let apples stand in sauce until deep pink, turning if necessary for uniform color.  Mix softened cream cheese, with milk and nuts.  Spread on crepes.  Drain apples, saving sauce.  Dissolve cornstarch in cold water; stir into apple syrup while heating for several minutes until thickened and translucent.  Place apple slices on top of cream cheese filling; fold crepes over.  Serve with sauce.
Yields:  12 crepes.
