After a day of fasting on Yom Kippur, it's traditional to mark the end of the holiday with a breakfastlike dairy meal. Gentle and comforting on empty stomachs, dishes such as blintzes fit the bill.
This recipe is a classic -- a rich, creamy filling enhanced by a topping of lightly sweetened fresh blueberries. The crêpe-like wrappers can be made and filled a day ahead, so the only steps that need be done at the last minute are frying the blintzes and making the sauce.Click here for a step-by-step slideshow on preparing blueberry blintzes.
The filling of these classic cheese blintzes gets its perfect consistency from a mix of cottage and farmer cheeses. The latter, a drier version of cottage cheese, is available at most supermarkets.
A simple blueberry sauce tops off the dish. If blueberries aren't in season, frozen berries can be substituted. Use unsweetened, and do not defrost them before combining with the sugar and cornstarch.
