Crêpes Belle Helene

This dessert is my modern, allergy-friendly twist on a European classic, Poires Belle Helene, which was created around 1864 by Auguste Escoffier and named after the Offenbach operetta La belle Héléne. The original dessert was made from pears poached in sugar syrup and served with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and crystallized violets. The pears are best when prepared the evening before.
