       Since the holidays are coming up, I wanted to make a traditional Polish recipe in my family that
we make every Christmas. So I’m going to be making blintzes. They are kind of similar to crepes,
in a way, but with sour cream (traditionally).

-Milk, ¾ cup and 2 tbsp
-2 tbsp of melted unsalted butter
-2 large eggs
-1 cup and 2 tbsp all purpose flour
-¼ teaspoon coarse salt
-your choice of pie filling
-confectioner’s sugar (optional)
-sour cream (optional)

1. First you need to whisk together milk, butter, and eggs until creamy consistency.
2. Next slowly mix in flour, and add in salt.
3. Now to cook the blintz, put a medium sized circle in the middle of your pan, make sure
there is plenty of butter on the pan, then slowly tilt the pan in a circular motion so the
bottom half of the pan is completely coated with the batter. Keep doing until there’s no
more batter.
4. Next lay out the blintz and put about a spoon full of pie filling in the middle and fold it into
thirds, you can also add sour cream (traditional) or powdered sugar for taste.
