  2. Place a lightly greased 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until skillet is hot.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons batter into skillet; quickly tilt in all directions so that batter covers bottom of skillet.
  4. Cook 2 minutes or until crêpe can be shaken loose from skillet. Turn crêpe, and cook about 30 seconds. Repeat with remaining batter. Stack crêpes between sheets of wax paper until ready to fill.
  5. To make ahead: Place crepes, stacked with waxed paper between each, in a zip-top plastic freezer bag. Freeze crêpes up to 1 month. Thaw overnight before using; reheating is not necessary.
