Basic Crepes

I love crepes & a friend asked for my recipe. Here is the basic recipe for making crepes. The fun part is what you put in the crepes. Mine depends on the mood. Sometimes I like sweet fruit but then other times I like vegetables & cheese. The possibilities are endless with crepes.

1-1/2 c 2% milk
4 eggs
1 c all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
8 tsp butter

In a small bowl, whisk milk & eggs. Combine the flour, sugar & salt; add to milk mixture & mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in an 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn & cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack.
Repeat with remaining batter, adding butter to skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between. Yield: 16 crepes.
