    Oh, I love Blintzes!

    I've come across a whole bunch of strange recipes for these. People trying to make them real easy like.

    Would you believe there's a recipe that uses slices of white bread that have the crust cut off and then rolled flat. They use a mixture of cream cheese, milk and vanilla and spread it on the flattened bread. They are dipped into melted butter, rolled in sugar and cinnamon, and then baked. STRANGE!

    It's amazing what some people will do to get Blintzes.

    Blintzes are usually just really, really thin pancakes. You can think of them as crepes. I like them filled with a mixture of cottage cheese and cream cheese that's been sweetened with a bit of sugar.

    Once the crepes are made and cooled, put a bit of cheese mixture in them and roll them up. They are then put seam side down on a baking pan and baked for about 10 minutes until they are heated through.

    I like to cover this with some warmed cherry pie filling as a sauce. That's easier than making a sauce out of cherries, but that can be done as well.

    Love BLINTZES!

    Breakfast Blintzes

    We usually have blintzes filled with cottage cheese mixed with farmers cheese and sweetened with sugar. These are covered with strawberry preserves and served with sour cream.

    Another way to fill them is with a mixture of ricotta cheese and sour cream. Add an egg to help bind it and some sugar to sweeten it. Use this as a filling along with about 2 tbsp of fresh blueberries. Roll up and bake. This can then be served with a blueberry sauce and fresh blueberries.

    We love them for a special breakfast when company comes. They also make great desserts.

    What's nice about blintzes is that they freeze wonderfully.
