“This would go well with Basic Whole Wheat French Crepes #102058. This is a nice company dish, easy to prepare, especially if made in stages. Some can even be frozen and just popped in the oven. If you plan to freeze crepes, use only fresh ingredients to start with. This is from Cook Now, Serve Later Cookbook. Enjoy! This recipe makes more sauce than needed so save some out, then add more as desired.”
