Farmer’s Cheese Blintzes
If there is one thing that I love, it is a
good great blintz. I grew up eating blintzes stuffed with farmer’s cheese for breakfast and only now realize how fortunate I was to get such a special meal so often. I realized this after I started making them myself and can see the time commitment they require. That being said, you will soon realize that the time commitment is worth it when you bite into a heavenly, light blintz dipped in a tangy-sweet berry sauce. Try them for yourself and I am sure you’ll make them again and again for those you love.
