Put butter in the blender jar. Set timer for 4 minutes and temperature on Medium. Once butter has melted add the milk and then turn the unit off. Add the flour, salt and sugar to the blender jar and then blend on speed 1. Scrape the sides of the blender jar and blend to incorporate any ingredients that may be clinging to the jar. With the unit running on speed 1, add eggs one a time and then the vanilla. Raise to speed 3 to fully blend the mixture so it has no lumps. If time allows, let the batter rest in the refrigerator for at least ½ hour. Before using batter, whisk to re-blend, straining if necessary to remove any lumps. Melt the teaspoon of butter in an 8-inch skillet set over medium heat. Once pan is hot, add a scant ¼ cup of batter to the pan, moving the batter around quickly to make a thin coating on the pan. Cook the crêpe for 2 to 3 minutes, until the edges just start to brown, and then carefully flip and finish the other side for an additional minute. Continue cooking crêpes until the batter is gone. Serve with apple filling (recipe listed under Breakfast and Dessert).
