My family often has company over for breakfast or brunch, and these light fruit-topped crepes are our favorite. The sweet sensations are as fast to make as they are fabulous. You can cook the crepes the night before, refrigerate them with waxed paper in between, then fill and top them in the morning. —Shelly Soule Las Vegas, Nevada

"These were so easy to make and tasted like they came from a fancy restaurant. I've never chilled the batter before and I couldn't believe how much easier it was to work with!"

"Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. I have made many crepes over the years, these were really nice. Chilling the batter helps make it very forgiving, and easy to work with. A keeper for sure"

"Awesome! We make this a lot! A little sweet, IMO, for breakfast though so I cut back the sugar in the filling."
