Cornstarch crepes

Great with both sweet and savory fillings.  We have eaten these with seafood and alfredo sauce.  We have also enjoyed them with fresh fruit and lemon curd.  They would be equally good with fruit and whipped cream.

2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cornstarch

In a blender, combine eggs, milk, corn oil, salt and cornstarch; blend 30 seconds or until smooth. Spray small nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat well over med-high heat. Pour about 2 T batter into center of skillet, rotating quickly to evenly coat pan. Cook about 30 seconds until the edges begin to brown and pull away from pan. Carefully turn crepe; cook 30 seconds longer. Slide out of skillet onto holding dish. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes 12 six-inch crepes.

Re: Cornstarch crepes

I have never made crepes before and don't know much about them but this sounds really easy.  Question.   Do you have to use these immediately or
will they keep?

Re: Cornstarch crepes

They keep well. You will need to put a piece of waxed paper in between each one to keep them from sticking together, though.  I haven't tried freezing them, but have kept them in the refrigerator for several days.

Re: Cornstarch crepes

Dilbert, are you by chance wheat intolerant?  I've noticed you have a few wheat free recipes...I just made my bosses daughter (celiac) chocolate chip cookies (Alton Brown's recipe) unfortunately she ended up getting sick!  Though it wasn't necessarily my cookies, I still feel pretty crummy.  I also made them for a someone with gluten intolerence...and he was just fine!  But I do plan on trying some of your recipes and/or passing them along.

Re: Cornstarch crepes

Yes, my son and I have celiac disease.  Our whole house is gluten free.  If any of your celiac/gluten intolerant friends are looking for an internet support group, this is my favorite: http://forums.glutenfree.com/  I have tons of recipes posted over there.  I've just been bringing a few over here that I thought everyone could enjoy, not just the people that are avoiding gluten.

Hope you enjoy the recipe!  smile

Thanks, I am emailing that link to my best friend who has a problem with gluten.
