I invited my daughter, 2 DILs and 6 granddaughters over for lunch and a day at the pool, and I served this with a salad. It was perfect and a hit with the adults, although the DGDs couldn't be persuaded to try them. The oldest is 8, and had never seen crepes before! The only changes I made was to use soy milk in the crepes, for my lactose-intolerent DIL, and also to drizzle a tablespoon of the sauce inside each crepe. It really made a lovely presentation, and 2 per adult was a perfect luncheon portion. The next time I make them, I will be sure to make the crepes the night before to cut the prep time. Thank you Bergy for reviving my interest in crepes!
