Steps to make Nalesniki – Ukrainian Crepes
Preheat the oven to 250 °F.
Prepare batter for crepes
Heat and lightly butter a 6-inch non-stick pan on medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into the pan and swirl the pan to help the batter spread evenly. Cook the crepes one side only for about 1 minute or until lightly browned. Don’t turn over. Repeat until you have 12 crepes, buttering the pan each time. Stack the crepes and keep them warm in the oven at 250 °F.
