My Jewish grandma used to make homemade cheese blintzes, which are crepes. I adapted this for my family as a snack. Making crepes can be tedious; these are wonderful.

these were pretty good. I made a few substitions based on what I had in the cupboard first off I didn't have any matzo meal so I subbed bread crumbs. I also didn't have cottage cheese I did have ricotta (so weird it's not like ricotta is something I regularly buy) I mixed the ricotta with honey instead of the white sugar and also mixed in a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. The only downside is that after being cooked these have a short shelf life they turn kinda mushy after a couple of minutes and definitely tasted yeck when I tried to eat one I'd placed into the fridge for later. Oh well it was a simple and easy last minute treat. I think they would be even better with some fruit mixed in maybe a little spoonful of blueberry preserves or even better fig jam. Read More

Excellent. We use cream cheese (no added ingredients)for the filling. My husband's family has for many years. Memories of Grandma Millie's "Fried Crackers" has been talked about much this summer since she passed away last month. I am going to try the filling in this one though. Sounds yummy! Read More
