12 large eggs
3/4 cup potato starch
1 cup water

In a blender (or using an immersion blender or whisk) beat eggs. Add potato starch, water and salt. Blend until smooth.
Lightly grease a crepe maker, crepe pan or skillet. Heat over medium-high heat. Add 3-4 tablespoons batter and swirl the pan to coat the bottom with a thick layer. Let cook until crepe is firm and edges appear golden, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spatula, flip crepe. Cook for 15 seconds and flip over onto plate. Repeat with remaining batter, re-greasing crepemaker or pan as necessary. Stack crepes as they are completed.

Watch this video.
How to fold blintzes:
Spoon 1/4 cup of the ingredients along the lower third of the crepe. Fold the bottom edge away from you to just cover the filling; then fold the 2 sides in to the center. Roll the blintz away from you a couple of times to make a package, ending with the seam side down. Saute in oil over medium heat or place in an ovenproof pan in oven at 350° until brown.
