Mom's Baked Blintzes

Cheese blintzes are baked in a rich custard and bake up puffy, golden and brown. They are surprisingly light and fluffy and are a perfect dish to serve for brunch, a shower, or Break the Fast. Serve these topped with fresh berries or fresh fruit compote.

Recipe Notes

Note: There are so many ways to serve these and although some families would never serve cheese blintzes with sour cream and apple sauce (typically reserved for potato blintzes), I have a husband at home who loves sour cream with these), so feel free to serve bowls of both. You never know what concoctions your family will fall in love with. One of my boys will eat anything covered in applesauce, so, just some food (ha) for thought.
