Blintzes (Shavout)

Three golden blintzes lay side by side on a white plate.

Directions

Cheese blintzes are the traditional meal for the festival of Shavuot, when dairy meals are traditionally eaten.

For filling: combine cheeses, sugar, and egg. Add cinnamon and raisins.

For batter: Combine flour, water and salt. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Spoon a little batter into a heated, greased 7-inch frying pan (crepe-size), just to coat bottom, tipping to spread it thin. Cook on one side only then turn onto a towel. Place about 1 1/2 tbs. filling on each pancake, roll up, tucking in ends. Bake for 10 minutes at medium heat.
