Need something easy and fabulous for breakfast to celebrate the new year?    You have to try some blintzes! 

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    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. 

Blintz Filling
  • 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
Combine all ingredients well.   Put a spoonful of cream filling in a crepe, then fold the sides over or roll them up.   Fold the open ends up toward the center and then gently put the filled crepe back in a skillet to brown a bit more.   Gently turn over and brown the top.

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.
