  1. Mix all ingredient in a blender or food processor until smooth. Refrigerate 30 minutes or more.
  2. To make the crepes: Heat crepe pan or non stick fry pan (5-8 inches) until drops of water dance on it. Brush with melted butter. Pour in 2-3 Tbs of batter tilt pan in all directions until batter covers the entire surface of the pan. Cook about 1 minute or until browned on the bottom you will see the edges start to pull away from the side of the pan,gently flip and cook the other side 1 minute. Repeat process for the rest of the batter. Let cool on cooling racks when thoroughly cool stack with parchment in between each crepe place in ziplock bag and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for several weeks.

Fool is one of the underappreciated concoctions of all time. Nicely done here with crepes.
