      Thanks so much for reviving this recipe..I had made it for years after it was in the magazine and then after a couple of moves-lost the recipe..needed the exact recipe for the tender, easy and delicious crepes (mannicoti)! They make the recipe no matter what sauce you use. Beats by miles the tubes sold in boxes.
