“My Jewish grandma used to make homemade cheese blintzes, which are crepes. I adapted this for my family as a snack. Making crepes can be tedious; these are wonderful.”

Original recipe yields 20 snacks

Directions

  1. Stir together the cottage cheese, matzo meal, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Place about 1 tablespoon of the cheese filling onto a cracker, top with another cracker, and press down. Set the filled crackers aside. Beat the eggs in a shallow bowl.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides of each filled cracker in the beaten egg, then place into the hot oil. Pan-fry the cracker snacks on both sides until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve hot.

these were pretty good. I made a few substitions based on what I had in the cupboard, first off, I didn't have any matzo meal, so I subbed bread crumbs. I also didn't have cottage cheese, I did have ricotta (so weird, it's not like ricotta is something I regularly buy) I mixed the ricotta with honey instead of the white sugar and also mixed in a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. The only downside is that after being cooked, these have a short shelf life, they turn kinda mushy after a couple of minutes and definitely tasted yeck, when I tried to eat one I'd placed into the fridge for later. Oh well, it was a simple and easy, last minute treat. I think they would be even better with some fruit mixed in, maybe a little spoonful of blueberry preserves or even better, fig jam.
