Cheese Blintzes

Fun

Think of an obscure word. Everyone at the table guesses what the definition might be, and votes for the best one!

What is the difference between a bystander and an bystander? How have you stood up for someone or something important lately?

Blintzes are thin pancakes rolled around various sweet fillings. This recipe comes from my dad, who grew up eating these in Eastern Europe and Israel.

 

 

 

Ingredients

Make approximately 24 Blintzes

4 large eggs, beaten

1 cup flour

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup flour

 

Filling:

1 pound dry curd or ricotta cheese

1 large egg yolk

1 tbsp butter, melted

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup sugar or more to taste

Instructions

  • Beat together all the blintz ingredients and let the batter rest for at least a half hour.
  • Heat a small skillet with butter. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan and swirl it around, removing excess. Avoid browning.
  • Flip and cook the other side for a few seconds. Then turn blintz out onto a towel. Repeat with with remaining batter and pats of butter.
  • Mix all the filling ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • To assemble, place 1 blintz on a work surface and place 1 tbsp filling on top. Fold envelope style and roll up.
  • Continue with remaining blintzes and filling.
  • Fry filled blintzes in butter until golden. Serve with fruit toppings and/or sour cream.
