To Make Crepes:
In bowl, whisk flour with salt. In small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the butter; whisk into flour mixture until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Strain through fine sieve into bowl. Heat an 8 inch (20 cm) crepe pan or skillet over medium heat; brush with some of the remaining butter. For each crepe, pour 1/4 cup (50 mL) of batter into center of pan, swirling pan to coat; cook, turning once, until golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to plate. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month).

Brush with remaining butter. (Make-ahead: cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)
