      Title: Crepes
 Categories: Breakfast, Lowfat
      Yield: 20 Servings
 
      1 c  Cold water
      1 c  Cold skim milk
      6 ea Egg whites
    1/2 ts Lite salt or less or none
      2 c  Sifted flour
      2 tb Canola oil
 
  Put liquids, egg whites and salt into a blender jar; add flour then
  oil. Blend at top speed, scrapimg any flour adhering to the sides of
  the jar. Cover, refrigerate 2 hours. This is an important step-it
  allows the flour particles to expand in the liquid and insures a
  tender, thin crepe. The batter should be a very light creamy
  texture-just thick enough to coat a wooden spoon. For each crepe,
  heat 6" nonstick fry pan over moderatly high heat. When hot, pour a
  scant 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet;immediatly rotate the
  pan until batter covers bottom. Cook until light brown; turn and
  brown on the other side. Slide onto warm plate and proceed in same
  manner with rest of batter. Put waxed paper between crepes. Keep
  covered, as they cool, to prevent them from drying out. The crepes
  are now ready to be filled. Makes 20 crepes, 6" each. SERVING,

  ways.

  them with jams,jellies, puddings, or fresh or stewed fruit.

  one spresd with a low-fat filling and served cut in pie shaped wedges.
  Appetizers, main dishes and desserts can be made that way.

  pancakes.

  poultry, seafood or vegetable fillings-rolles into cylinders or
  floded and served with or without a sauce. They afford a marvelous
  opportunity for using leftovers in an elegant disguise.
