Dinner Tonight: November 11, 2015 Cheese Blintzes

Cheese Blintzes

Fun

One person names 4 items ("Cookie, Cake, Ice Cream, Pretzel"). The others guess which doesn't belong (pretzel, because it's not sweet).

If you were showing a foreigner around your hometown, where would you take them?

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.
