|One, one, one!|
My cousin Tziporah recently introduced me to Greek yogurt. I love how it’s thick and creamy with a little bit of the yogurt tartness to it. While eating a strawberry one for lunch the other day I thought “wow- this would probably be really good in a blintz!” I already had the blintz wrapper recipe from Mom, although in the past I had always made classic blintzes filled with farmer cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla

(it’s the “Bubbie’s old school” part of me).
My family is very happy with the huge selection of home made blintzes that they are having for dinner. I made them even prettier by topping them with defrosted frozen strawberries and blueberries, the diced peaches from a “peach fruit cup”, and drizzled honey. With powdered sugar sprinkled over the top and they almost looked professional! Bubbie would be proud.
Note: To make these blintzes for the GFE (Gluten Free Eater) use the gluten-free recipe from the aish.com article BLINTZES FOR EVERYONE!
