Servings 8 people


  • 20-25 blinis or crepes
  • 1 lb /500g Farmer's Cheese or Tvorog
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons sugar for cheese mixture
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼-½ cup sugar to sprinkle
  • 1 cup whipping cream


  • Make the blini ahead of time, stacked on a plate according to this recipe.
  • In a bowl, mix the Farmer's Cheese, salt, sugar and an egg until combined.
  • To make the Cheese Blintzes, take 1 Blinchik Crepe and lay flat on a surface. Take 1-2 tablespoons of the Farmers Cheese mixture and place on the edge of closest to you. Fold the bottom over the cheese, wrap the sides in, and roll the Cheese Blintz. It's like rolling a burrito. Place in a baking tray.
  • Continue making the Cheese Blintzes until it's all use up. This makes 2 trays, I usually freeze one for future use, or one large casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle about a ¼ cup of sugar on top of each blintz tray. Pour enough whipping cream so the the Cheese Blintzes are covered with the cream.
  • Place in a preheated oven at 350°F/180°F. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until it starts to bubble and the whipping cream is absorbed into the blintzes.
  • Serve immediately with sour cream.
