When we were little we love, love, LOVED going to our Aunt Mary's house to sleep over. First of all, she is the BOMB aunt and second of all, she always made us her famous (at least in our family) crepes for breakfast! They are simple and sweet, but we adore them!

Now whenever we get together at my mom's house the making of breakfast usually falls on my shoulders and everyone's vote is usually crepes. So here is our easy crepe recipe with a few pictures of some of the steps.

In a liquid measuring cup combine:
3 eggs
1 C. milk
1 C. flour
1 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

*Whisk together--I usually add a little bit more milk once I have it mixed up because you'll want your batter thin enough to spread it around your pan.

*Heat a frying pan (or a crepe pan) on medium low heat.
*Pam the pan when warm.
*Pour a small amount of batter (about 1/4 the size of your pan) in the middle or to one side.
*Roll the pan around spreading your batter evenly across the pan.
*When the edges start to curl, flip it over and cook it for 30 seconds to a minute.
*Put on a plate, spread butter, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar (pre-mixed), roll up, and EAT!

**We also love to add warm apple sauce to these and eat them with a fork.
**Also delicious with bavarian cream & fruit!

Pour the batter into a pammed pan.

Roll the pan around by the handle spreading out the batter evenly.
Flip it over when the edges start to curl (this one has just been flipped)
Spread butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar

Fold over one edge...

Roll it up and VOILA!
