Try-It-Tuesday

Today we are featuring one of my favorite meals, Crepe's or as the kids call them "creepies". They are so easy to make and just the right thing for that age old question - Whats' for Dinner or Breakfast or whatever. So here we go.....
*****
Crepes`
3 eggs
1 tbl flour
1 tbl water
1 tbl milk
pinch of salt
1/8 cup sugar (for a sweet crepe)
Mix all this together vigorously, no flour clumps and you want the mixture to be frothy
In a non-stick pan add just a touch of oil and wipe off with paper towel, making sure to cover the rims as well. You want to batter to stick in place but not stick and never come out of the pan. Pour the batter in and swirl till it covers the entire bottom of the pan. I cook at a high heat so it goes quickly. When the crepe can be separated from the edge easily, flip over and brown the other side. At this point you should be able to move the crepe with your hand and it should slide out of the pan with no spatula.
Let the crepe cool down before adding the filling.
Filling:
I pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Mix till well incorporated then spread over entire crepe, at this point you can add fruit filling or I used any jam that we have in the fridge.

Roll up and wait for the rest to cool. One batch usually makes about 4-5 crepes so I usually double it.

Place on a plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar and with a BIG glass of milk, enjoy!!!

These are so yummy and so easy to make and once you have the crepe you can fill it with anything you want.

Now you make that so easy but I bet it'll be a hot mess when I try! I actually have a class scheduled this month to learn how to make crepes and english muffins. Now It'll be a refresher for the crepes. Thanks!

Am I the only person who didn't know crepes were eggs?! I thought they were dough based. Hm. Live and learn, I guess! The cream cheese looks yummy!!
