One of our co-laborers, Marilyn Ramsdale, sent us this recipe for klintzes.” She says that these goodies are a cross between kreplach* and blintzes,* and that they made a great hit at her chapter meeting in upstate New York. If you have an international palate and like to experiment in the kitchen, you too can enjoy this non-secret recipe.
Combine in a large mixing bowl and blend thoroughly:
1 lb. dry cottage cheese or farmer’s cheese
2 tbs. matzoh meal (or fine cracker crumbs)
2 tbs. melted butter or margarine
2 tbs. sugar
3 tbs. raisins
2 well-beaten eggs
Place a small amount of this filling onto a Chinese egg roll wrapper and fold like a wonton (If you don’t recognize either of those items, try using 4-inch rounds of noodle or pie dough. Fill centers as above. Fold over and crimp edges, dampening with water to make them stick.)
Place klintzes on lightly-greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. Top with sour cream before serving.
Be even more creative—try a sprinkle of cinnamon on the outside and/or finely chopped nuts on the inside. Just don’t blame Jews for Jesus if they don’t turn out right—after all, we’re missionaries, not chefs!
*Kreplach: Jewish version of cheese ravioli
*Blintzes: Jewish version of meat or cheese empenadas
