This recipe is awesome. I made these for breakfast a few Easter's ago. I am being requested to make them again this Easter. They are delicious!..you can also freeze the crepes..the recipe makes roughly 20- 25.

If you are having guests for Easter morning..they would be very impressed with these delicious crepes.

Enjoy!
