Quick Cheese Blintzes




Traditional cheese blintzes involved making crepes.  This is a quick and more modern version using plain, old white bread – less mess and fuss…and very tasty for breakfast! 


INGREDIENTS:
1 (1 pound) loaf white bread
4 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese,
softened
        2 tablespoons milk
        1 teaspoon vanilla extract
        1/2 cup butter, melted
        1 pint sour cream



DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a cookie sheet generously with non-stick cooking spray.



In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. 





3.

Trim crusts from bread.


Roll the slices flat.




This shows you the difference in thickness after rolling flat. 




In a large mixing bowl, mix softened cream cheese, milk and vanilla until smooth. 





Spread this mixture onto each slice of flattened bread. 






Roll each bread slice up. 





Dip bread/cream cheese rolls in melted butter, roll the blintzes immediately in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.






Cut rolls into 1 inch pieces, if you'd like (I left them regular size). Arrange the blintzes on the prepared cookie sheet. 





Bake for 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream (optional).
