I’ve always been a fan of breakfast dishes that are both delicious and impressive, and this recipe seems to check all the boxes.

Ingredients

  • 3 3 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

  • 1-1/4 cup 1-1/4 water

  • 1 cup 1 all-purpose flour

  • Filling
  • 1-1/2 cups 1-1/2 creamed cottage cheese (pot cheese)

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 pepper

  • Sugar if desired

  • 2 tablespoons 2 all-vegetable shortening

  • 1 1 egg

Directions

  • Beat the eggs slightly. Add the salt, 3/4 cup water, the flour, and the rest of the water, if needed to make a thin, smooth batter. Cover a hot, well-Criscoed skillet with a thin layer of the batter, tipping skillet in all directions to obtain a thin layer. Fry until it is golden brown on one side and then turn out on a clean cloth. Continue until all batter is used.
  • Mix filling ingredients together. Place a full tablespoon of the mixture in the center of each batter sheet on the brown side. Roll up, tucking in the ends. Fry in a well-Criscoed skillet immediately or place in refrigerator until needed.
  • Serve with fruit sauce, fresh fruit, butter sauce, jelly, sour cream, or cinnamon. Other fillings: meat, mushrooms, jelly.

As I start preparing the Cheese Blintzes, I can’t help but appreciate the simplicity of the thin pancakes that serve as the base. The delicate texture and slightly sweet flavor of the pancakes create the perfect foundation for the delectable filling.

Speaking of the filling, cottage cheese takes center stage in this recipe. Its creamy and slightly tangy nature adds a wonderful contrast to the sweetness of the pancakes. I carefully spoon the cottage cheese onto each pancake and gently roll them up, creating little bundles of goodness.

Once the Cheese Blintzes are assembled, it’s time to decide on the topping. Whether I choose a sweet option like fruit compote or a savory one like sour cream and herbs, I know that both options will elevate the dish to new heights.

As I take my first bite, I’m greeted with a burst of flavors and textures. The soft and tender pancakes encase the creamy and slightly tangy cottage cheese filling, creating a harmonious combination. The chosen topping adds the perfect finishing touch, complementing the flavors and enhancing the overall experience.

I can already imagine the reaction of my guests when they taste these Cheese Blintzes. The combination of flavors and the delicate presentation are sure to impress. I can’t help but feel a sense of pride knowing that this recipe will be requested and cherished by those who try it.
