Expert Tips

  • Crepes are great made ahead. To freeze place crepes between pieces of plastic wrap, then wrap entire stack in foil for up to 2 months. To thaw, place package in refrigerator overnight, remove pieces of plastic wrap between crepes and bake in 250°F oven 5 minutes or until warm.
  • Heat the pan slowly so it reaches the perfect temperature to quickly cook each crêpe without sticking. Lightly butter the pan before adding the batter; buttering skillet as needed.
  • Practice flipping the crêpes. Wait until the surface of a crêpe is no longer shiny and the edges are starting to brown. Loosen it from the skillet with a small spatula; turn and cook other side until light brown. Another method is after loosening from skillet, lift the pan up off the burner. Push the skillet forward quickly so the crêpe slides out and flips on its own, landing back in the pan to finish cooking.
  • Save time and make crepes ahead of time. Make crepes as directed and cool completely; do not fill. Stack crepes, placing waxed paper between each, keep covered.
