Blintzes (Shavout)


Traditional Jewish Blintzes deep fried on a plate

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

  • 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.
