HOW TO MAKE IT
- To make the crêpes (savory + sweet) – In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.
- Add ½ cup flour, mix well, add remaining ½ cup of flour.
- If making savory crêpes, add salt. If making sweet crêpes, add vanilla extract & sugar.
- While whisking continually, slowly drizzle in the melted butter.
- Heat a 8" or 10" non-stick pan over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes. Brush pan with extra melted butter.
- Pour 3 tablespoons (8" pan) or 4 tablespoons (10" pan) into the pan and swirl until the entire bottom of the pan is covered.
- Cook for 20-30 seconds, or until the edge of the crêpe looks dry and starts to pull away from the edge of the pan. Flip and cook for 10-15 seconds more. Remove from the pan and cool on a flat surface.
- Repeat until the batter is gone.
- Stack crêpes on a plate. They can be wrapped tightly and stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, or used immediately.
- To make the Sugar Shack Crêpe and filling – Cook sweet crêpe according to the directions above.
- In a large nonstick pan, place the crepe spread out on the bottom and fold in half.
- Place the pat of butter on the crêpe and allow it to begin melting. Move the butter over the whole crêpe until all surfaces have been buttered.
- Sprinkle the maple sugar evenly over the crêpe.
- Take the lower left corner of the crêpe and fold the corner up to where 11:00 would be if the crêpe was a clock. This should form a triangle with ⅔ of the crêpe. Fold one more time to complete the triangle.
- Serve with hot Vermont Pure Maple Syrup and powdered sugar.
