These worked very well! They are similar to crepe shells, but just with more egg (at least my crepe recipe). I use a smaller round pan (maybe 6 or 7" skillet) and wait until it gets hot on the burner. I like to pick it up off the burner when I am pouring the batter so that I can roll the batter around to get thin, full coverage in the pan. It takes a little practice at first. I usually find that I spray the first one and end up throwing the first one away because it never turns out well. Then, I usually don't have to spray the pan any more after that and they come off fine. I like to have the stove between medium and medium high because the process goes more quickly. You have to really watch them, but they usually start pulling away from the pan on the first side in a minute or two and are ready to be flipped. I like to at least flip them and give the second side a little color, although I don't leave them on the stove on the second side for as long. I ended up making a ricotta cheese filling, which is more of what I think of as manicotti, to go inside and I ended up with too little filling. Next time I'll double my filling recipe, but these were great and I'll definitely use this recipe again!
