May 10, 2013

Berry cheese blintzes are a brunch dish that the whole family will love for Mother's Day.  Thin crepe-like pancakes are stuffed with a sweet cheese mixture and folded to resembled a burrito.  They are pan fried in butter until golden brown and delicious.  Each blintz is topped with sour cream and berry sauce.  You can also use fresh berries if they are in season for this recipe.
