BA Music offers a blintze recipe for Passover

Bill Averbach (the "BA" of "BA Music"), the person who provides us with the amazing recording of The Big Megilla every year, weighs in with something new (to us) for the upcoming Passover holiday:

Well Shalom Y’all! (again)

I am doing a little workshop on how to make Kosher for Passover Blintzes for the Sisterhood at one of the Temples in Charlotte. (Great way to meet older women!)

(Don’t tell my wife)

So here’s the Blintze recipe.

The recipe makes about 8-10 of these buggers.
