The recipe she is sharing comes from museum staff member Maria Klimchak:

Nalysnyky (Ukrainian Crêpes)


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Butter


  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp cream
  1. In large bowl, combine eggs, flour, milk, sugar, brandy, vanilla and salt; mix just until combined. Mix in oil. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Brush 6-inch crêpe pan or small skillet with butter; heat over medium heat. Pour a few tablespoons of the batter into pan, swirling and tilting pan to coat thinly and evenly. Cook until lightly browned on bottom; transfer to plate. Continue with remaining batter, brushing pan lightly with butter each time.
  3. Filling: Cream together cream cheese, icing sugar and cream
  4. Spread about 1 tbsp of the filling on 1 of the crêpes. Roll up and place in greased baking dish. Repeat with remaining crêpes and filling. Bake in 300°F oven for 20 to 30 minutes.

**Tip: For the filling, you can use other jams, or meat and vegetables with sauce.
