Making a Blintz

This is a recipe handed down from my great grandmother - Enjoy

4 eggs                                           2 cups milk
4 tbsp salad oil                            1½ cup sifted flour
1 tsp. Salt                                    2 cups sour cream
½ cup butter                               Confection sugar
Medium bowl                               Mixer
Plastic wrap                                Fry pan

Make fillings first. Make both of the fillings or double one recipe. Then, in a medium bowl beat eggs, oil and milk together. Slowly add flour and salt and beat until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Batter should be consistency of heavy cream. Put ½ tsp. butter in skillet at medium heat. Add 3 tbsp of batter and spread evenly. Lightly brown batter on the bottom and remove. Continue until all the batter has been used. Stack blintzes with browned side on top. Place 3 tbsp of a filling on top of a blintz and fold. Fold ends in to cover the filling and roll. Use melted butter to close seams. You can freeze now and keep for a week. If you refrigerate they keep for 1-2 days. To cook now, melt the rest of the butter in skillet. Cook over low heat seam side down until golden brown. Keep cooked blintzes warm and serve hot with sour cream.
