Parents’ Crepes

With the first snow storm I’m thinking of Winters’ past…Growing up the tradition was to have crepes every Christmas morning: decadent fillings and maple syrup whipped cream.
T loves waffles but now that he’s older being able to choose his own filling then wrapping it up, really appeals to him. They have even become a regular item included in his lunch box.
Reduce the sugar in the batter for a savory version, and add a couple Tablespoons of squash puree to kick up the healthiness.

3 eggs
1 cup carnation canned evaporated milk
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Whisk together eggs and carnation, slowly add milk while stirring. Mix in vanilla and syrup.
Combine flour with sugar and salt .
Add drya little bit at a time and mix until well combined. Melt butter and add gradually, whisking constantly.
Cover and let rest in fridge at least 1/2 an hr. or over night.
1/2c batter into centre of med hot pan. Move pan around to distribute batter. When it looks dry flip. Do not let over brown or it will be too crispy to roll.
Fill, roll, and eat.
