NB There was a wrong amount for the mace in the recipe - It said 1 tsp. It is now corrected to the correct amount of 1/4 tsp. Easy Tasty appetizer. Can be a "Do ahead" recipe. If you wish you can make this as a side dish for dinner just double the size of the crepes. The crepes as appetizers should be apprx 6" across. The recipe may be cut in half or doubled. Make a large batch of crepes they freeze really well. Just layer them with wax paper between each and wrap well in plastic . Then you will have them on hand for any easy appetizer - Enjoy!

Woah - easy on the mace there! I didn't see the other reviews before making this, and ended up throwing all my crepes away after a couple bites.
We also did not care for the mace, however the filling (other than the mace)and the crepe was very good.. It was an easy and unusual meal for my DH and I. I will probably make again, sans the mace. Thanks for posting. Colorado Lauralee
5 stars says DH, I really liked them too but am not fond of Mace, if I make them again I would use nutmeg. I only got 8 crepes, I used a 9 inch pan. The crepes were nicely "hot" with the cayenne, the filling was quite delicious but was more than needed, I had enough left over to fill a large mushroom which I sprinkled with asiago cheese also. Like I said the only thing I would do differently would be to use nutmeg instead of the mace, personal preference. Well done! good luck in the contest.
