Dessert Crepes

Recipe Yields:
Ten 9-inch crepes

One summer we had an au pair from Austria named Micki. She was the most wonderful cook. Apparently our grocery bill more than tripled that summer. But taste one of Micki's creations and you'd forget about everything else! This is Micki’s crepe recipe. They are light and delicious and can be filled with anything!
