Ingredients
  Sifted flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Eggs 4
  Egg yolks 4
  Milk 1 Quart
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Clarified butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

1. Mix the flour, eggs and egg yolks with a wire whisk. Add the milk, sugar and salt and beat until all the ingredients are thoroughly blended.
2. Melt the butter in a small container and skim off the foam. Pour off and reserve the fat, or clarified butter. Discard the sediment in the bottom of the container.
3. Heat a four-inch skillet and brush it with the clarified butter. Pour in one tablespoon of the batter and tilt the pan immediately so that the batter will spread over the entire bottom of the pan. Cook the crepe quickly on both sides.
4. Repeat the process until all the crepes are cooked, stacking them on a plate as they are finished. If the crepes are to be sauced later, cover with waxed paper to prevent drying.
