Heat lightly greased medium nonstick skillet on medium heat. Ladle 1/4 cup batter into skillet, tilting pan to form a thin round circle. Cook 1 to 2 min. or until edge of crepe is lightly browned. Carefully turn crepe with spatula; cook an additional 30 sec. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm. Repeat to make a total of 8 crepes.
