This traditional family recipe tastes great. Blintzes may be wrapped and frozen after filling and before baking. Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream and strawberry (or other) preserves.
Beat eggs in a bowl. Add milk, oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Beat in flour using an electric mixer until well blended. Let batter stand for 15 to 30 minutes.
Mix the remaining 1 teaspoon salt, cottage cheese, sugar, sour cream, egg yolk, and cinnamon together in a bowl to make the filling.
Melt butter in a 6- to 7-inch skillet. Spoon a portion of the batter onto the skillet; cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn out onto a tea towel. Repeat with the remaining batter, thinning with small amounts of water if necessary and greasing the pan after every 2 to 3 blintzes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
Melt the remaining butter in the skillet over low heat, about 1 minute.
Place a blintz on a clean work surface with the uncooked side up. Add 1 tablespoon filling and roll up, completely covering the filling. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining blintzes. Brush filled blintzes with melted butter.
Bake in the preheated oven until brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Eat good breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is simple . Simply put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
