Swedish Pancakes {recipe}

I didn't even know what crepes were until I was in high school. At my house we called them Swedish Pancakes, a delicacy that was the highlight of any day (usually a special occasion) in which my mom made them.
I've tried other various recipes but this one is my favorite (and the easiest) and therefore I am declaring this the right way to make crepes/Swedish Pancakes, the way my mom made them.

Whisk together Bisquick eggs and milk. Pour approx 1/4 cup (I just eyeball it) into a medium hot pan (or griddle), then swirl it around in the pan to make a super thin circular pancake (mine still never look exactly right!)
Wait until it is no longer shiny/wet and the edges start to curl up. Then flip and cook just 1-2 minutes longer.
Add in your filling. The right filling is spread it with butter then add brown sugar, powdered sugar, sour cream, and sprinkle with lemon juice. Oh my. I'm salivating just thinking about how yummy that combo tastes.
Roll up and dive in!
And guess what? One pancake is only 58 calories!
Obviously if you make it the right way the filling will add a bunch more calories, but there are other healthier options. ;)
