Directions:
For the Crepes:
Beat eggs and milk in a bowl at low speed to blend. Beat in flour and salt; stir in melted butter. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (better if refrigerated overnight.)
The batter should be similar to heavy cream, if it is too thick, thin with more milk, Heat a 8-inch pan and coat with either butter or cooking spray. Pour approximately 2 tablespoons of batter in a pan, swirling pan, cooking crepes for 2-3 minutes until browned. Repeat with remaining batter.

For the Orange Crepes Casserole:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease or butter a 11 x 7 x 2-inch pan.

Crepe Filling:
Mix cheese, eggs, sugar, orange rind, vanilla, and salt in a bowl. Add raisins. Spoon approximately 2-3 tablespoons of filling into browned side of each crepe. Fold opposite sides over filling, overlapping ends, envelope style, enclosing the filling. Place in baking dish. Brush with butter. Bake for 30 minutes.

Personal Notes:
I usually make this for Easter Brunch. You can have everything prepared the night before (the filled crepes brushed with butter and covered with Saran wrap) with the exception of the sauce and bake it when you wake in the morning.
