Shavuot Blintzes


Batter Ingredients

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1oz Melted Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Salt Oil for pan

Filling Ingredients

  • 17oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 3.5oz Raisins
  • 3.1oz Sugar Dash of Cinnamon


  1. Mix all of the filling ingredients, cover with a plastic wrap and let sit in the refridgerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Mix together ingredients for the batter – eggs, sugar, vanilla, butter and milk.
  3. Add the flour and salt and mix until you get a uniform texture. (No lumps!)
  4. Heat a pan over medium heat with a small amount of oil. Place about 2-4 tbsp of batter in your pan, and shape to the size of the pan with either a utensil or by holding the pan and gently tipping it to let the batter cover the bottom.
  5. Cook your blintzes for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  6. Add your filling, roll your blintzes and enjoy!
