Looking for prepared blintzes W/O filling

When I make blintzes the filling is the easiest part. It is the blintzes wraps that is the annoying part. It is cost inefficient to buy blintzes already fill with, say, 4 to a package. I would love to be able to buy a package of, say, 20 prepared blintzes wraps. Should not cost that much to make and package and would be a great starting point. Sort of like making pies by starting with a prepared pie crust.

  1. I've seen those!! I can't remember where, but I know I saw them refrigerated with waxed paper between the layers. So they exist..

    1. Check for crepe wraps. I know they come ready to be filled. I have a friend that uses Asian wonton wrappers. I saw crepe wraps before Pesach. I think they were in the produce section at Fairway but I have been to so many markets shopping for the holiday since then my mind is a blur. I think they may also be available frozen. Good luck and happy filling.

      1. I've seen crepes in the produce section, near the strawberries.

            kosher yes, but dairy

            most waldbaums on the island carry them, also in the freezer by the frozen fruit section

              Dairy is just fine since I will be using them for cheese blintzes.

                if you get the frozen ones, defrost them on top of a couple of paper towels, and keep them under the pile while youre stuffing them indivisulally, lots of trial and error taught me that

        1. In Toronto I regularly see various Asian and North African wrappers (usually frozen) that are kosher and pareve. There are various sizes, thicknesses, and styles.

          The crepe wrappers (usually in the produce section) tend not to be as good.

          1. pomegranate has them as we sell it to them in bulk and they repack it .also supsol in queens. by pom ithink it is in one of the front end freezer but i'm not positive but they absolutely have it

                Gleibler, where can I get your ready made crepes in the Monsey area?

                  Being that gliebler posted this in April 2009, (s)he might not see your query now.
