"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." — merri rosenthal

1 (8 ounce) container
whole saltine crackers
vegetable oil, or as needed
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.
