Blintzes


Right after starting production our Cheese Blintzes became a very popular item among our customers. They are made of very delicate, crispy dough on one side, and soft on the other (just like every good Chef would like them to be!) We prepare our cheese dough using select cheeses and our own unique and special recipe. We hope you will enjoy taste of our special blintzes.

Cooking tips:
  • Always thaw blintzes before frying
  • Be careful when microwaving since it might cause the cheese to expend and leak from the product
  • As a serving tip, try it with your favorite fruit yogurt.



Origin of Blintzes: The English word blintz comes from blin. 'Blin' comes from Old Slavic mlin, that means 'to mill' ( compare the Ukrainian word for blin млинець, mlynets' ). Blins had a somewhat ritual significance for early Slavic peoples in pre-Christian times since they were a symbol of the sun, due to their round form. They were traditionally prepared at the end of the winter to honor the rebirth of the new sun (Pancake week, or Maslenitsa). (A blintz, blintze or blin (plural: blintzes, Lithuanian: Blynai, blynai; Russian: блин blin, блины (pl.) Polish: bliny; Ukrainian: млинці, mlyntsi; is a thin pancake (similar to a crêpe).
