  6. Serve with squeezed lemons and powdered sugar

Special Steps – FOLDING

  1. Fold in half, then in half again the same direction creating a long skinny burrito kind of pastry.
  2. Fold in half, then again in the opposite direction creating a triangle with a rounded side

Special Steps – SERVING OPTIONS

Special Steps – PREPARATION OPTIONS

  • It’s not traditional, but if you add 1/4 tsp baking powder, you will get a fluffier crepe
  • Eliminate the sugar for lunch crepes.
  • If you don’t have a sifter (I don’t either) you can do what I do:  use a wire strainer basket and a wooden spoon
