Growing up our Christmas morning tradition was having crepes and hot chocolate for breakfast.  My Mom makes delicious crepes and we fill them with fruit and cool whip.  She fries hers over the stove and has a special technique to making them.  When I married McKay he showed me another delicious way to eat crepes.  I'd never seen a crepe maker until I met him...
This tool makes it easy to make the perfect, round crepe to fill.  Here's his family's recipe and they are also a tradition around Christmas at his house!

2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt

We usually double this recipe because the filling recipe makes so much.  Mix all ingredients and place in a shallow plate/pan if you have a crepe maker.  The crepe maker works by tipping it upside down into the batter so the whole crepe plate is covered.  The batter cooks for 30 seconds to a minute and you carefully peel the crepe off.  It really makes them easy!  If you don't have one, you can pour onto a greased frying pan and flip like a pancake. 

Cream cheese (8 ounce)
Cool Whip (8 ounce)
Powdered sugar (at least 1 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend well to avoid any chunks of cream cheese.  When crepes are cool, spread a spoonful down the middle and roll crepe.
