Blintzes are a glorified pancake - or crepe, if you will.
We certainly will. We love these.
Love them, I tell you. With the white hot intensity of a thousand suns. My 'I hate breakfast' kid will eat four of them. FOUR. This is nothing short of miraculous.
Here's a great recipe for crepes from allrecipes.com. Make them very thin so they'll be easy to fold up. To turn the crepes into blintzes, you fill them with a sweet cheesy mixture and then fold them up and cook them again.
- 1 package cream cheese, 8 oz or 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
- splash of vanilla
- optional 2 Tablespoons marmalade
Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with generous amounts of marmalade or jam.
Tip: Have two skillets going - one for the crepes and one for the blintzes. You only need small skillets. You do not need special pans.
