Making Crepes - Triangular folded crepe sprinkled with sugar and topped with a lemon slice.These thin pancakes are delicious and just as easy to make as classic pancakes. If you are making them for more than 2 people, I would suggest using more than one pan.


They can be frozen. Place each crepe on it's own piece of waxed paper. Stack and place them in a container and freeze.
