Can you freeze crepes?

I want to make a bunch of crepes today (like, 50) to be eaten on Saturday morning. Will they freeze well? Should I separate them with parchment paper? How should I reheat them? Any advice would be much appreciated!

Not only can you freeze them, but they do very well after being frozen. I separate mine with waxed paper, but parchment would probably do as well. I would thaw them in the fridge rather than risk ruining them in the microwave later.

Whenever I make crepes, I purposely make much more than needed to freeze - between wax paper, well wrapped (so thin edges don't dry/crack.) They defrost in the fridge very quickly. When my children were young, crepes were one of my 'money in the bank' freezer caches - reheated quickly in a pan, folded over jam, nutella, cheese, or my favorite: butter, squeeze of lemon and crunchy sugar. Once you're making a bunch of crepes, an extra dozen or so isn't much more work.
