1 (1 pound) loaf
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
YUM! Just a few things though...
1.) If you are going to cut them up, do it BEFORE you dip them into the melted butter. It makes for a LOT less mess. Personally, I think they are prettier left whole (especially if you are planning on serving them to guests) 2.) I had extras of almost every ingredient except the cinnamon/sugar. My suggestion would be: double the cinnamon, TRIPLE the sugar, and cut all of the rest of the ingredients in half (unless you want to make a TON!). 3.) When you roll the bread slices flat, make sure it is very smashed. Otherwise the butter soaks into the bread too much and makes it really soggy. And last... 4.) Bake them longer than it calls for (about 15 minutes).
I had never had these before, but this recipe is a keeper. I think it would be great to serve at a brunch.
I was extremely excited about this after reading all the glowing reviews but I was ultimately disappointed. I followed some tips and added egg and sugar to the cream cheese mix and it was ok, kind of a simple cheesecake mixture. I also didn't find it too messy or difficult. The thing that for me let it down the most was the white bread...I was skeptical but based on comments I was hopeful that the bread would undergo some kind of transformation which it did not...it tasted like cheesecake mix wrapped in white bread sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. And whether you like them or hate them I think to call them blintzes is extremely misleading as they are not even close to the real thing.
I was tickled to see this recipe - my great-Aunt Erma (who always called them "blini") taught me to make these years ago. We don't serve them with the sour cream, but they are always a hit. A quick tip - the cinnamon-sugar can get a bit lumpy and tacky from the melted butter after a while. so start out with only half the butter and cinnamon-sugar in small bowls. When you are halfway done dipping the blini, toss the old tacky stuff and start dipping the other half with fresh melted butter and cinnamon-sugar.
These were a real hit with the all the moms and kids at my sons Valentines Day party. Easy to make and great tasting. One suggestion, these should be served the same day. I made these a day ahead and they became slightly soggy. These taste great hot out of the oven. Great Recipe.
Delicious!!! I served these as dessert for my
husband's Super Bowl party. After eating so many spicy and salty things, the men loved these, and
several asked for the recipe. They're easy and
fun to make, and they're just yummy! Thanks for
I loved this recipe!!! So easy, and delicious!! Tastes great if you add comstock fruit to it!!
A huge hit at a football party.
These are so pretty! I only used half of the cream cheese mixture for 20 ounces of bread (yep, less mixture for more bread than called for). I rolled them tight and cut them in half diagonally before dipping them in butter. If you want to avoid having a plate with cinnamon sugar paste on it, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on them instead of rolling. I had McCormick pre-mixed cinn-sugar and using that was great. I baked them for 15 minutes on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. (Parchment paper is my best friend in the kitchen). I didn't use the sour cream , just served them as is and got great compliments.
