Directions:
Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Stir in vanilla sugar.
In a separate bowl mix milk and eggs. Make a well in the flour and add the liquid mixture a small amount at a time.
Use a whisk to stir after each addition, increasing the size of the well until entire batter has been whisked lump-free. Mix in butter.
Let sit for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Pour thin layer of batter in a small frying pan over medium heat. Cook for ~1 min, then flip.
Optional: Pour a small measure of liquor into the pan and quickly light with a kitchen torch.

Serve with vanilla sugar sprinkled on top. Other great toppings are nutella, whipped cream, jam or maple syrup.

*To make vanilla sugar, store whole vanilla beans in an airtight container with a 5 lb bag of sugar. Regular sugar works as a substitute.

Personal Notes:
The Lee, Stewart and Weyerer families were introduced to crepes in the street of Paris in 2005. The tradition of homemade crepes was born on Thanksgiving as a contribution to the meal from French interns working with Marc, and he was so excited by the flames that he carried the recipe back to Westfork for Christmas. Warning: Sweater Fuzzies may ignite! Just ask Ann.
