    Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. With ladle or 1/4-cup measure, add 2 tablespoons batter to skillet. Tilt and rotate pan to coat. Cook 30 seconds or until crepe is browned on bottom and dry on edge. Lift with a silicone spatula and flip over. Cook 5 seconds, then transfer to a sheet of waxed paper. Repeat with remaining batter for about 18 total, stacking crepes with waxed paper in between. Crepes can be wrapped and frozen for up to 1 month.
    Filling:

    In a saucepan, blend juice, cornstarch and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat for 6 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cherries; heat 5 minutes. If too thin, combine 2 more teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Stir into pan; cook until thickened.

    Place one crepe flat on a plate. Spoon about 2 tablespoons filling on one quarter. Fold crepe over; then fold again to form fan shape. Repeat with remaining crepes. Drizzle with additional sauce.
