This recipe comes from a very long time ago. It was usual food on the Russian table, especially in winter. There is even an old holiday in Russia, that is held at the very end of winter/beginning of spring called Maslenitsa. On this day people have a lot of fun somewhere in the forest, they make a figure of winter out of straw and burn it to welcome spring. During the holiday the common dish is crepes with butter.
