Crespelle

Almost every culture has some form of crespelle or crepes in its cuisine. In Italy we use them in soups, to make manicotti, layer lasagna with them, and of course eat them for dessert. I loved them most as dessert and ate them often as a child, topped with sugar or sometimes filled with just marmalade. Rose-hip marmalade was my favorite. On special occasions, we filled warm crepes with chocolate and topped them with toasted walnuts. Two or three of these crespelle and a glass of goat’s milk was my supper on many an evening.
