My heritage is Russian & Ukrainian and this was my Grandma's recipe for her famous Blini. My grandma would have these every time I would come to her house to visit and the smell was amazing. My grandma has passed on to a better place and I, along with my husband & 5 children have bought my grandparents house & now live where the memories were made. I make these for every special occasion and family even that we have, Please enjoy!

eggs
1 1/2 c

CHEESE FILLING

24 oz

3 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the Blini shells the first step is to mix the dry ingredients(flour & sugar).Beat eggs well, Add milk to eggs. Then add to dry ingredients a little at a time, beating well. Batter will be smooth like pancake batter. Using a 7 inch skillet that has been lightly oiled/sprayed, pour thin layer of batter to cover bottom of pan. Fry till light in color, frying only the one side. Remove to a plate to cool before filling
2
To make cheese filling place all the filling ingredients(cheese, eggs & sugar) in a blender or food processor & mix well.
****You can also fill the shells with Applesauce, Apricot, Prune or Poppyseed filling as well.
3
To make Blini, place a shell on a cutting board or counter top. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling into the center of the non fried side and spread evenly creating a line in that center leaving about an inch at each end. Roll over until log forms and place in a buttered baking dish.(Be careful not to over lap the Blini) Take a spoon & run the back of the spoon through the sour cream and then spread a thin layer evenly over top of each Blini. Now Place a few pats of butter over top the prepared Blini Pan, then sprinkle with cinnamon & lightly dust with powdered sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm & enjoy
