  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a 6 inch skillet over medium het.
  4. Brush the pan lightly with oil.
  5. Holding the pan in one hand, spoon in about 1/3 cup of the crepe batter and immediately rotate and tilt the pan to completely cover the bottom.
  6. Pour any excess batter back into the bowl.
  7. Cook the crepe for one minute, or until the edges turn brown and begin to lift away from the pan.

  9. Slide the cooked crepe onto a plate.
  10. Cover with a piece of wax paper.
