2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon minced ginger

2 oranges, zested and juiced, reserve some zest for garnish, plus 4 oranges peeled and segmented

1 star anise

8 crepes, folded into triangles

1/4 cup orange liqueur (recommend: Grand Marnier)

1 pint best-quality vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add butter and melt. Stir in ginger, orange zest, orange juice and star anise and bring to a simmer. Add orange segments and crepes to warm through.
