"This is very easy, though it took me much longer than 20 minutes to cook them. Maybe that will improve with practice?

I added cinnamon & cardamon, because I originally intended to use them around strawberries (with sweetened cream cheese, which was all very tasty), then tried some with veggies & chicken in a cheese sauce.
Probably better to go with plain or savory crepes for that.
Live & learn."

"I make this at least once a week and everybody loves it, I use only 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites to get a more healthy choice, we stuff them with a variety of fruits and sweet toppings for sweet crepes or cheese, ham, mushrooms and sauces for savory crepes... They are really easy to make and very tasty"

"Too eggy. I've used other recipes that only use the egg whites and they're much better. These were ok tasting and easy to make... but I won't be making this recipe again."

"These were delicious! I was looking for something different to make use of leftover roasted chicken, and the filling on the next page, "Hubby's Favorite Crepes," was just right! Since this makes so many crepes, I'll be experimenting with other fillings as well. Merci! (thanks) for sharing!"
