Thanksgiving Crepes via LashesandDashesEvery year for Christmas for as long as I can remember we have had  Crepes for breakfast on Christmas morning, it has become one of my  favorite traditions! Over the past couple years we have come to the  realization that this tradition is to good to be kept for only Christmas,  last year we had the Crepes on New Years Day as well. This year we  decided to make them on Thanksgiving. This tradition is one I  plan on continuing when I have my own family. The crepes are super easy to make, which is one of the reasons we love them! Also they  look just as wonderful as they taste! Feel free to fill the crepes with  what ever you would like, below I have listed some ideas.

Without any further adieu here is the recipe for my families crepes.



1/2 tsp salt

1 TBL sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

3 eggs

1 cup half and half

1/2 cup skim milk

2  TBS melted butter

1 cup all purpose flour

1 TBS butter

Some Ideads for the Filling for the Crepes

Your favorite jam

Whipped Cream

Powdered Sugar


Fresh Fruit

Combine the salt, sugar, eggs, milk, butter and vanilla in a blender until well mixed. Add in 1/2 a cup of flour at a time and blend until smooth. Let the batter chill in the fridge for at least half an hour. When you are ready to cook blend the batter again so that it is smooth. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, place a small amount of butter in the hot skillet, let it melt. Pour the batter into the middle of the pan, pour enough batter to almost cover the bottom of the skillet, Move the pan around just slightly to bring the batter to the edges of the pan. Once the crepes has bubbles flip it with a plastic spatula. Once the crepe is brown on both sides take it out of the pan and place it on a warm plate. Continue the above steps until you have no batter left. Once all of the Crepes are cooked you can begin filling them with your favorite fillings.  We place all of the fillings on the table so everyone can choose what they would like.
