    Orange Ricotta Pillows with Lillet Kumquat Compote. LMW 9/21/14: Very good, with qualifications. Nice and tasty, a good use for our kumquats. Silly to waste 2 cups of a very specific wine just for this sauce. See additional comments below. Crepe recipe makes 6 to 8 crepes; a fragile crepe but does work. Made batter the night before, a good idea. Note: I did add juice from half a lime into sauce to brighten the flavor. You could just as well make rolled crepes. Saved in email.
