    1. Crape Batter: In a bowl combine the flour, eggs, salt and sugar. Mix and gradually stir in the cold milk, then add the melted butter. Mix well so there are no lumps. Set the batter aside for 1 hour.
    2. Lemon Cream: Heat butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in the sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice stirring constantly.
    3. Add the whisked egg yolks all at once and continue to whisk for several minutes until the mixture thickens.
    4. Remove from heat. Whisk the egg whites until stiff then gently fold into the cooled lemon cream. Set aside.
    5. Making the Crapes: Butter a frying pan or a griddle if you have one. When hot pour a ladle of batter into the frying pan and rotate to coat the frying pan with the batter.
    6. Cook the crepe for 2 minutes then flip the crepe over and cook for 30 seconds. Repeat until all crepes are cooked. Keep warm on a plate until you are ready to add the lemon cream.
    7. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon cream in each crepe and roll them carefully. Serve.
