Place eggs, flour and milk in a blender and process to combine. Let crepe batter rest for 20 minutes or more. Heat crepe pan over medium heat, brush with melted butter and pour scant 1/3 cup of batter into the pan tilting to coat. Cook for 1-2 minutes until top of crepe looks dull and edges can easily be pulled up. Run a wide metal spatula under the crepe and flip to cook the other side for about 1 minute. Prepare remaining crepes in the same manner, brushing pan with butter each time. Stack crepes until ready to fill.
