“From the Crisco Website. Posting for safe keeping. I am including the crepe recipe but feel free to use your favorite crepe recipe. Times are approximate and do not include batter chill time. You can probably use any apple that cooks well. NOTE: the recipe on the website stated 1 crepe recipe but it makes 12 crepes but the apple brown betty recipe says it makes 6 crepes. You can always freeze any unfilled leftover crepes.”
