Blintzas Recipe

Step 1

Sift flour and salt. Beat eggs well, add water. Add flour gradually to eggs, stirring constantly, until batter is smooth and thin. Heat a small frying pan, Teflon makes life easy, and smear with a very thin coat of butter. When pan is hot, put in about 1/4 cup batter, tilt pan until it covers.

Step 2

Mix the ingredients well. Now it's time to 'build your blintzas' as my daughter used to say. Put some filling off center on each circle. Fold the bottom up and the top down. Tuck in sides, or fold in, before you put the op down.

Step 3

I guess the directions don't change when you change the ammounts.
