When we spend the night at my mother-in-law's house, our kids beg her to make these crepe-like pancakes for breakfast. They're a little lighter than traditional pancakes, so my family can eat a lot! —Susan Johnson, Lyons, Kansas

"I have not tried this receipe for Swedish Pancakes. Swedish pancakes are NEVER made with oil always melted butter. Since I am Swedish and my parents were born in Swedish and my oldest daughter lives in Sweden I will continue to make my mother's recipe for Swedish pancakes. I wouldn't even want to try this recipe."

"I've used a similar recipe that we make a big batch, then freeze. they are great that way too.

Another way to serve is with peanut butter, or with butter and brown sugar."

"This is a question, not a comment. Can these be frozen? How are they after they are frozen?"

"Mix/whip cream cheese and butter or margarine together and spread on pancakes. Then add a dollup of cherry, apple, or blackberry pie filling and roll up like a blitz or do the fold over thing. Sprinkle rollup with powder sugar. Place side by side in rows on serving platter for a beautiful addition to a tasty brunch."
