These cheese blintzes weren't very hard to make and went over really well at our weekly church potluck this past Sunday. I've never tried cheese blintzes before this recipe, so I have no idea if they're the way they're supposed to taste, but either way, they were really good!
1 (1 pound) loaf white bread (I used wheat)
4 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I made up my own cinnamon sugar without the recipe and I used probably double the amount of cinnamon sugar called for and had more cinnamon in it too. It added a lot of flavor with the extra cinnamon sugar.)
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter melted
1)Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet generously with non-stick cooking spray.
2) Trim crusts from bread and roll the slices flat with a rolling pin. (I didn't bother to trim the crusts and it was quicker and still tasted fine.)
3) In a pie plate, combine sugar and cinnamon to make a mixture.
4) In a large mixing bowl, with electric mixer, mix softened cream cheese, milk, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread this mixture onto each slice of flattened bread. (I laid all my slices out on the counter and spread it out on all of them before rolling them up to make sure each slice was evenly coated and that I didn't run out.) Roll up bread with filling in the middle and cut in half. Using a pastry brush, brush the halves with melted butter, evenly coating it. Then, roll each half in the cinnamon sugar. Coat it well. Then put the blintzes on the prepared cookie sheet. Repeat for all blintzes.
5) Bake for 10 minutes. You can serve these hot, cold, or lukewarm. They taste good all ways. See which you prefer best!
