As the children grew, so did their tastes and desires. Birthdays celebrate that growth and add a personal touch to the day. One birthday tradition was the ability to pick the dinner of their choice. Our son Dan was our breakfast boy… that was his favorite meal of the day. For him, the joy of his birthday started the first thing of the day with energy which fueled him. So, bring on the Russians… blintzes that is and let the celebration start.
Russian Blinchiky with Cream Cheese
1 c flour
3 T sugar divided
1/2 t salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 c milk
1 (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 c sour cream
1/8 t cinnamon
1 T butter
In a large blender container, add milk eggs, 1 T sugar, and salt. Process on stir until blended. Slowly add flour: blend. Allow crepe batter to sit for 5 minutes.
In a mixer bowl, add cream cheese, sour cream butter and cinnamon. Combine until blended.
In a large greased fry pan, pour 2 T of crepe batter all at once into pan; tilt to spread batter out.. Cook until top is set and underside browned. Brown on one side only. Start a stack of these crepes on a side plate. They do not stick together.
When all of crepe batter is done, place about 1 T of filling in the center of the browned side. Fold 2 opposite sides over filling, then roll, starting at unfold edge. Heat in butter or margarine in fry pan until hot and nicely browned, turning once. Serve with either fruit pie filling or maple syrup.
