Let's Make Blintzes!

Throughout the Western world people eat crepe suzettes. Blintzes are the Jewish eastern European version of the French treat. The word "blintz" comes from a Ukrainian word meaning "pancake." Israelis will choose this light meal, a delicacy with a choice of several different fillings, in the evening.

Ingredients 

Filling

  • 1 lb. dry cottage cheese
  • 1 small package cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • cinnamon
  • 2-3 tbs. sugar raisins (optional)

Batter

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup water, soda water or milk
  • 2 eggs

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.
