I made these great shells. I used four and froze the other four. I used them in Mexican Manicotti which turned out so good. We only ate two as they were so filling.
I was looking for a manicotti recipe last week because my Nana and I were very close and it was her birthday. I now live in SC and she was still in NY and it was her favorite meal we had it everytime I was home, so I wanted to cook it for a "special" dinner to remember her. I came on here looking for a crepe recipe because she never used "short cuts" meaning pasta and I found this. This recipe was very easy, the crepes didn't tear and took no time at all. I have made these again this past weekend, they are just perfect for me. Thanks for posting, your recipe helped me "share" a very special dinner with my Nana!!
great basic crepe recipe also. Tips for making crepes, get a crepe pan or nonstick round griddle pan. Make sure you let it sit, bubbles are not your friends. Pour using a ladle, and roll the pan to make a THIN coating so use a little while tilting the pan to coat the pan. You can use a spatula, but make it a thin one and scoot it under wiggling it back and forth a bit towards the middle. Flip them QUICK one quick smooth motion. It is easy once you get it but it takes practice. It is so worth it.
This recipe did not work for me. I couldn't "use my fingers" to flip the crepe because it wouldn't remove itself from the bottom of the pan. So I wasted one crepe. I tried again, this time using a spatula. The crepe broke in half. I tried again and again, each time without success. EASY? I don't think so.
Really good and really easy!!
They turned out puuuuurfectly! Easy and delish!
super-duper treat this is ma-ma-mia this was great
Great crepes! I added a bit of sugar to mine so that they were more of the breakfast or dessert variety.
This really was so simple and tasted awesome. It was my first time ever making crepes, and I was thrilled with the results. I used a simple filling of ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses, one egg white, and some dried herbs. Delicious. Thanks for posting.
So tasty and EASY, will never buy store bought again!
