The most delicate and elegant pancakes you’ve ever tasted, these are like little balls of buttery fluff that melt in your mouth. With a preparation time of 30 minutes, we were lucky if my mother fixed these twice during the eight days of Passover, and then we would wait another full year before tasting them again. They are very small, so plan on 8-12 pancakes per person, and more if you have competitive teenage eaters in the house.
