Directions

  1. Crêpes: put 3 egg yolks and 1 tablespoons sugar in the top of a double boiler. Mix well - set over gently simmering water over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until yolk mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat -continue to whisk until mixture cools and becomes pale yellow.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Beat egg whites in a nonreactive bowl until foamy. Gradually add 3 tablespoons sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Sprinkle flour into yolk mixture. Mix well, then gently fold in egg whites. Spread 1/4 cup of batter on a nonstick cookie sheet, forming a 3'' round. Smooth, then repeat with remaining batter, forming 6 rounds in all. Bake until golden, about 10 minutes. (Finished crêpes should be light and spongy.) Transfer to a cake rack to cool.
  4. For the filling, combine remaining 2 egg yolks, 4 tablespoons sugar, and white wine in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly to keep yolks from scrambling, over medium-high heat. Remove pan from heat and whisk for 1 minute more. Cool completely. Meanwhile, whip cream until stiff, then gently fold, a little at a time, into yolk mixture.
  5. To assemble, divide filling between crêpes, fold over, then sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and serve.
