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.
