Dissolve white sugar in 1 quart of warm water. Dip a rice paper in to wet thoroughly. Place it on a dry tea towel and allow to sit for 30 seconds or until completely pliable. Brush the surface with melted butter.

Spoon a 1/3-cup portion of apple mixture onto bottom third of paper. Tuck in ends and roll paper up to firmly enclose filling. Place seam side down on a parchment or aluminum foil lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven until crepes are crisp and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Serve warm with a sprig of fresh mint, dollop of sweetened creme fraiche and fresh seasonal berries.
