Ingredients:  
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk (whole or 2%) nothing less
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour

1/2 tsp. sugar
Oil for coating the pan

Omit sugar when using for lunch/dinner crepes

Directions:
Directions:
In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients and blend well. Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This allows the batter to settle and crepes are less likely to tear when cooking. You can store batter for up to 48 hours if you need to. Heat a small non-stick pan (they have small super thin crepe pans that are great but use what you have. Add oil to coat pan. I use a marinating brush and a bowl of oil to keep the pan coated between crepes. Don't use non-stick spray. Pour approx 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and start swirling in a circular motion immediately, spread evenly to about a 6 inch circle. This takes practice. Cook for about 10 seconds and flip over. These are so thin they cook fast, so have a wax papered cooking sheet ready and layer each level to help keep them from sticking. These will freeze up to two months. Thaw on a rack slowly before using.

Personal Notes:
These are great stuffed with cottage cheese, cream cheese, mixture and topped with glazed strawberries.

Mom's chicken crepe stuffing recipe is excellent with these.
