  • 3/4 cup butter for frying

blintz dough

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 3/4 pound cottage cheese
  • 1 egg yolk lightly beaten
  • grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons raisins


  • In a bowl, combine ingredients for the batter and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Combine filling ingredients in another bowl.
  • Lightly grease a skillet, omelet, or crepe pan and place over high heat.
  • Add a large tablespoon of batter and tip the pan so the batter spreads from side to side to cover the bottom.
  • Cook on 1 side for about 2 minutes, or until the batter loosens around the sides of the crepe.
  • Remove from pan and place on absorbent paper. Repeat until all the batter is used up, lightly greasing pan between each crepe.
  • Place a rounded tablespoon of the filling down the center of each pancake.
  • Fold the long sides toward the center to keep the filling from escaping, and roll up each pancake.
  • Melt remaining butter in the skillet and brown the blintzes over medium heat.
  • Serve with applesauce or with sour cream, sugar, and cinnamon.
